On Thursday morning, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) announced that she is dropping out the of the presidential race after Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden drubbed her in the Super Tuesday primaries.

Warren was among the 25 Democratic candidates to enter the race –– which left only Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Sanders and Biden standing.

Warren joins former South Bend Mayor, Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and hedge-fund billionaire Tom Steyer in withdrawing from the race in recent days. 

The once Democratic front-runner suffered a major decline in support after she proposed huge spending for her Medicare for All plan.
