Mayor Bill de Blasio drops 2020 presidential bid



(20 Sep 2019) New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio ended his campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination Friday after struggling to gain traction in a sprawling field of candidates.
De Blasio joins New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Washington Sen. Jay Inslee, Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and California Rep. Eric Swallwell, who have all left the Democratic primary race.
De Blasio launched his bid in May but his campaign largely failed to take off.
He never achieved higher than 1% in a national poll and was ridiculed in the media.
He qualified for the first two rounds of debates but failed to make the September debate stage and appeared unlikely to qualify for the October debates.
