Elizabeth Warren suspends presidential campaign

Top Stories

(NBC) – Elizabeth Warren has reportedly suspended her campaign for president.

NBC reports that a source close to the Warren campaign told NBC News and MSNBC that Warren will suspend her campaign for president.

Elizabeth Warren sent a statement to her campaign staff on Thursday that read:

I love you guys too. 
 
I want to start with the news. I want all of you to hear it first, and I want you to hear it straight from me: today, I’m suspending our campaign for president.
 
I know how hard all of you have worked. I know how you disrupted your lives to be part of this. I know you have families and loved ones you could have spent more time with. You missed them and they missed you. And I know you have sacrificed to be here.
 
So from the bottom of my heart,  thank you, for everything you have poured into this campaign. 
 
I know that when we set out, this was not the call you ever wanted to hear.  It is not the call I ever wanted to make.  But I refuse to let disappointment blind me – or you – to what we’ve accomplished.  We didn’t reach our goal, but what we have done together – what you have done – has made a lasting difference. It’s not the scale of the difference we wanted to make, but it matters – and the changes will have ripples for years to come.
 
What we have done – and the ideas we have launched into the world, the way we have fought this fight, the relationships we have built – will carry through, carry through for the rest of this election, and the one after that, and the one after that.

Elizabeth Warren
