Caucusing in Iowa begins next month and the fifth debate for the candidates running for the Democrat’s nominee will take place on Dec. 19th. Montana governor Steve Bullock is one candidate that will not be there.
Saying there’s no clear path to victory, Bullock has suspended his campaign and also says he will not run for Senate.
“While there were many obstacles we could not have anticipated when entering this race, it has become clear that in this moment, I won’t be able to break through to the top tier of this still-crowded field of candidates,” he said in a statement.
Bullock thanked those who supported his campaign and said the country is more divided today than ever.
“And when trust in government disappears, it gives rise to the dangerous discourse and divisiveness we’ve seen everywhere from Washington, D.C. to our Facebook feeds. Government becomes the enemy instead of a partner in improving our lives. We are more divided today than we have been at any point in my lifetime, with each side more interested in placing blame for what we have become, than inspiring each other to be better,” he continued.
Bullock jumped in the race over the summer, but never polled very high among the other candidates.
