America’s first female president will have to wait again…
Hawaiian Representative Tulsi Gabbard, the last candidate of color and women running for president, has dropped her bid. After winning 2 Delegates across the primaries, Gabbard’s long shot and controversial campaign has finally come to an end.
Gabbard made headlines in the early debate for a strong and fierce performance, attacking the establishment, but she made very little positive headlines or gained enough attention in a crowded field. She quickly became a controversial candidate after a feud with with Hillary Clinton, who suggested Republicans were “grooming” her to be a third-party spoiler and when Gabbard was one of only three Democrats who did not vote in favor of impeaching President Trump.
Gabbard has since endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden.
Former Massachusetts Governor, William Weld has dropped his long-shot bit against President Donald Trump for the Republican Nomination after the President locked enough Republican delegates for the nomination.
Weld himself admitted his campaign was a dream, but thought he could bring decency and more socially liberal ideas to convince enough Republicans to vote against the President. Weld ran as the Vice Presidential Nominee for the Libertarian Party in 2016 with Gary Johnson.
His decision to stay in the race was more about providing voters who dislike Mr. Trump with a place to cast a protest vote, rather than harboring any realistic hope of wrestling the nomination from the president. Weld and many other “Never Trump” Republicans ideologically don’t fit with their party anymore in the age of Trump.
