Post-Super Tuesday Chaos: Mike Bloomberg Drops Out, Pocahontas is ‘Reassessing’ Campaign
Following a Super Tuesday in which former Vice President Joe Biden crushed the competition, other Democrat presidential hopefuls are seriously re-evaluating their chances after dismal performances.
Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who once believed he could shamelessly buy the presidential nomination, has officially bowed out of the race.
“Three months ago, I entered the race for President to defeat Donald Trump,” Bloomberg said in a statement. “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, who has been dubbed “Mini Mike” by President Trump for his diminutive stature, was one of the biggest losers of Super Tuesday. He only won the primary in American Samoa and failed in every other contest.
“After yesterday’s results,” he said in the statement, “the delegate math has become virtually impossible — and a viable path to the nomination no longer exists.”
Bloomberg is now endorsing Biden in the hopes of coalescing all establishment support around him in the hopes of preventing far-left Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from obtaining the nomination.
“I’ve always believed that defeating Donald Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best shot to do it,” Bloomberg said. “After yesterday’s vote, it is clear that candidate is my friend and a great American, Joe Biden.”
Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (D-MA) may be joining Bloomberg soon and throwing in the towel on her fledgling presidential ambitions. She is doing some soul-searching, perhaps on a vision quest, after her campaign has failed to gain any momentum.
“Elizabeth is talking to her team to assess the path forward,” a campaign aide told The Hill.
Unlike Bloomberg, Warren has failed to win a single primary or caucus up to this point. She was even routed in her home state of Massachusetts. She has billed herself as a progressive alternative to Sanders, despite her extensive establishment ties.
As the field narrows, Biden’s campaign has been resurrected from the dead. He has the biggest endorsements and the delegate advantage moving forward.
“I’m here to report that we are very much alive,” Biden told a cheering crowd of supporters following his many Super Tuesday victories. “This campaign is taking off.”
Biden’s strength comes at the direct expense of Warren and Bloomberg, whose lackluster campaigns are or soon will be a forgotten footnote in the annals of U.S. history.
