Rep. Seth Moulton Drops Presidential Bid; Will Run for 4th Term in Congress

August 23, 2019

Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton ended his campaign for the 2020 Democratic nomination on Friday.  He becomes the 3rd candidate to drop out of the race in the past eight days, following Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.  None of these candidates were able to break through in a very crowded Democratic field.

Moulton will run for a 4th term in Congress. While the district is safely Democratic, his presidential ambitions have opened the door to at least two primary challengers in 2020.
