There have actually been three Democratic candidates who dropped out of the race for the presidency in the last three days.
The first drop out came Saturday night following the results of the South Carolina Primary as Tom Steyer announced he was ending his campaign realizing he doesn't have near enough support.
Then on Sunday evening, an unexpected candidate dropped out...Pete Buttigieg.
The reason I say that it was unexpected is because he actually won the Iowa Caucus and has been doing well in national polls.
Plus, Super Tuesday is the day where anything can change.
Then on Monday, Amy Klobuchar announced that she was dropping out as well. But I want to talk a little more about Buttigieg...
Fox News reported, Pete Buttigieg ended his presidential campaign Sunday, in an abrupt and surprising pullout that further narrows the field of Democrats less than a month after he declared victory in the contested Iowa caucuses.
"I will do everything in my power to ensure that we have a new Democratic president come January," Buttigieg told a throng of enthusiastic and emotional supporters in South Bend, Ind., on Sunday night, in a speech marked by an upbeat and forward-looking timbre.
"We sent a message to every kid out there wondering if whatever marks them out as different means they are destined to be less than," he continued amid chants of "USA!" and other cheers. "To see someone who once felt that exact same way can become a leading presidential candidate with his husband at his side."
Buttigieg's husband Chasten introduced the candidate by remarking through tears that "Pete got me to believe in myself again. ... I told Pete to run because I knew there were other kids that needed to believe in themselves, too."
What's funny is that apparently, Buttigieg tried calling Joe Biden before making his announcement but mistakenly called the wrong number. He left a message anyway giving a call back number.
