Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is the latest Democrat to drop out of the presidential race

Quote:
John Hickenlooper, the Democratic former governor of Colorado, has dropped out of the presidential race, clearing the crowded 2020 field of a moderate with a record of pragmatism who never quite caught on with primary voters.

But in a filmed statement, Hickenlooper said that while he was disappointed to be leaving the race, he would “never stop believing that America can only move forward when we work together.” He added that he had “heard from so many Coloradans” that he should jump into the Senate race, saying, “I intend to give that some serious thought”.

Hickenlooper’s presidential campaign was based on using his electoral success in Colorado and his history of political moderation as selling points.

He also broadcast his centrism by emphasizing his ability to “bring people together on many sides of the fence” and by pushing Sen. Bernie Sanders on the issue of socialism

But Hickenlooper failed to stand out in a field of some two dozen candidates. Though he made it onto both debate stages so far, he was not expected to make the third round of Democratic debates in September. Since he announced on March 4, the former governor never cracked 1 percent.

Jay Inslee drops out of the 2020 presidential race

Quote:
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee is dropping out of the 2020 Democratic presidential race, he announced Wednesday night on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show."

Inslee plans to send an email to supporters on Thursday announcing that he will run for a third term as governor, two sources close to Inslee told NBC News on condition of anonymity.

"It's become clear that I'm not going to be carrying the ball. I'm not going to be the president, so I'm withdrawing tonight from the race," he told Maddow, vowing he'd help keep the other 2020 candidates focused on issue of climate change, the centerpiece of his campaign. "I've been fighting climate change for 25 years, and I've never been so confident of the ability of America now to reach critical mass to move the ball."

Inslee's presidential campaign was bookended with pleas to take climate change seriously.

Inslee put out a detailed 10-year plan on how he'd move the country to clean energy, spurring other candidates to put out their own plans. Butting heads with the Democratic National Committee, or DNC, he demanded that the organization hold a debate focused on climate change.

The DNC rebuffed his pleas in June, but CNN announced soon after that it would hold a town hall on the issue with the candidates in September. Inslee, however, did not meet the polling criteria the network used for the event — a minimum of 2 percent in four DNC-recognized polls — and was not on the list of attendees the network announced on Tuesday.

While Inslee said Monday that he had reached the 130,000-donation threshold for the next debate in September, his lack of qualifying polls likely would have kept him from the debate stage, as well.

He declined to throw support behind another candidate on Wednesday but said he would endorse the Democratic nominee, "no matter who it is."

Other 2020 candidates were quick to praise his efforts.

Climate Change is supposed to be the existential issue that fires up the base. Yet the Australian election, the Yellow vest movement and Inslee’s early exit are indications of the opposite.
