John Delaney drops out of the 2020 Democratic primary race ahead of Iowa caucuses

Former Maryland Congressman John Delaney, the first Democrat to enter the 2020 race for president, has ended his campaign just day before the Iowa caucuses.

The announcement brings to a close the long-shot bid launched in 2017, just months after President Donald Trump took office.

Delaney’s campaign, in its release, cited internal analysis that said he would not be able to reach necessary thresholds to compete in Monday’s Iowa caucuses. Delaney had pegged much of his campaign strategy to cultivating support in the state.
