Longshot White House hopeful and celebrity self-help guru Marianne Williamson has suspended her 2020 campaign after failing to gain traction in the Democratic Party presidential primaries. 

Per Mediaite:
 

“I ran for president to help forge another direction for our country. I wanted to discuss things I felt needed to be discussed that otherwise were not. I feel that we have done that,” she declared in a statement. “I stayed in the race to take advantage of every possible opportunity to share our message. With caucuses and primaries now about to begin, however, we will not be able to garner enough votes in the election to elevate our conversation any more than it is now.”

“The primaries might be tightly contested among the top contenders, and I don’t want to get in the way of a progressive candidate winning any of them,” Williamson concluded. “As of today, therefore, I’m suspending my campaign.”

The announcement prompted all the jokes one would expect about a candidate who promoted anti-vaxxers and once warned of a “dark psychic force” in America.


Williamson's announcement followed a mass layoff of national campaign staff.
