Marianne Williamson Suspends her Presidential Campaign

Author Marianne Williamson has ended her bid for the Democratic nomination. This leaves Rep. Dean Phillips (MN-03) as the only well-known challenger to President Joe Biden.

She released a video and also posted some thoughts on Substack.

Williamson finished slightly ahead of Phillips in Saturday's South Carolina primary, but that only went so far in a contest where Biden received 96% of the vote. In Nevada, she received about 3% of the vote, finishing behind the president and "None of These Candidates".

This was Williamson's second presidential run. In 2020, as part of a much larger field, she withdrew prior to the first nominating contest in Iowa.
