Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg who spent half a billion into his Democratic presidential campaign announced that he is dropping out after a disappointing showing on Super Tuesday and is endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden.
“Three months ago, I entered the race for President to defeat Donald Trump. Today, I am leaving the race for the same reason: to defeat Donald Trump — because it is clear to me that staying in would make achieving that goal more difficult,” Bloomberg said in a statement Wednesday morning.
“After yesterday’s results, the delegate math has become virtually impossible – and a viable path to the nomination no longer exists. But I remain clear-eyed about my overriding objective: victory in November. Not for me, but for our country,” he added.
