John Delaney ends campaign for President

The Iowa caucuses start next week, but struggling Democratic presidential hopeful John Delaney has ended his campaign for the DNC’s nomination.

“lt has been a privilege to campaign for the Democratic nomination for President, but it is clear that God has a different purpose for me at this moment in time,” Delaney announced on his Twitter page.

Citing lack of support, Delaney posted a longer statement on his web site.

“This decision is informed by internal analyses indicating John’s support is not sufficient to meet the 15% viability in a material number of caucus precincts, but sufficient enough to cause other moderate candidates to not to make the viability threshold, especially in rural areas where John has campaigned harder than anyone.”

He then urged the party to “sharpen its focus on the growing opportunity inequality that exists in both rural America and struggling urban communities” and “advance candidates with progressive values on the big issues of our time, but who are committed to governing with pragmatic, fact-based, bipartisan solutions.”
