Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, the senator from New York who struggled to get much traction in polling, dropped her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination Wednesday.
Wednesday was the deadline for the next Democratic presidential debate, with tighter qualifications for candidates to make the debate stage.
Gillibrand failed to make that debate.
The 52-year-old lawmaker tweeted her withdrawal.
‘I’m ending my campaign for president. I’m so proud of this team and all we’ve accomplished but I think it’s important to know how you can best serve,” she wrote. “To our supporters, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Now let’s go beat Donald Trump and win back the Senate.”
