Which Candidates are Left in the 2020 Presidential Race? NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Drops Out of Democratic Primary

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was the latest Democrat to drop out of the crowded 2020 presidential race, announcing Friday morning that he was suspending his longshot campaign for the party's nomination.

"I feel like I've contributed all I can to this primary election and it's clearly not my time," de Blasio said on MSNBC's Morning Joe. "So I'm going to end my presidential campaign, continue my work as mayor of New York City, and I'm going to keep speaking up for working people and for a Democratic Party that stands for working people."

Since entering the race in May, de Blasio had struggled to rise ahead of his 2020 competitors and consistently polled at or below 1 percent. After failing to qualify for the Democratic debate in September, de Blasio said it was difficult to see how his campaign could continue if he didn't make it to the October debate stage.

Fellow New Yorker President Donald Trump mocked de Blasio shortly after he dropped out of the race. Trump tweeted that New York City is "devastated" that the mayor was returning home. A recent Siena College poll found that de Blasio had just a 33 percent favorable rating among city voters.

De Blasio's exit follows that of New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, Representative Seth Moulton of Massachusetts and Representative Eric Swalwell of California.

"Whoever our nominee is, let's make sure we're speaking to the hearts of working people and they know we're on their side," de Blasio said Friday. "And if we do that, we're going to win. If we don't, this is an election that could go the other way."
