Inslee, Moulton, Drop Presidential Bids

This week, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and Rep. Seth Moulton (MA), both of whom tossed their names into the hat for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, have dropped out after their bids failed to gain any traction. 

“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,” Inslee told Rachel Maddow.

Inslee, known most for his dedication to the Cult of Climate Change, is officially running for a third term as governor.

“I know you agree that our mission to defeat climate change must continue to be central to our national discussion…But I’ve concluded that my role in that effort will not be as a candidate to be the next president of the United States,” his campaign said.

Likewise, Moulton dropped out of the race this week, albeit unexpectedly.

He is expected to officially end his campaign Friday in a speech at the Democratic National Committee summer meeting in San Francisco.

“Today, I want to use this opportunity, with all of you here, to announce that I am ending my campaign for president,” Moulton is expected to say. “Though this campaign is not ending the way we hoped, I am leaving this race knowing that we raised issues that are vitally important to the American people and our future.”

Moulton also complained that the Democratic Party had become a race to see how far left the party can drift, and noted that theres only really a three-way race for the nomination between former vice president Joe Biden, and Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
