Former Texas Democrat congressman Beto ORourke announced Friday he is withdrawing from the 2020 presidential race, telling supporters it is clear to me now that this campaign does not have the means to move forward successfully.
ORourke entered the race in March to great fanfareafter nearly defeating Texas incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz in the 2018 midtermsbut struggled to gain traction in the massive Democratic primary field.

My service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee, ORourke wrote in a post on Medium. Acknowledging this now is in the best interests of those in the campaign; it is in the best interests of this party as we seek to unify around a nominee; and it is in the best interests of the country.
ORourke was in Iowa, ahead of a planned appearance at an event in Des Moines, when he announced his exit from the race. On Friday, an emotional ORourke addressed a group of supporters after the news broke. This has been the honor of my lifetime, he told them. I love you all and I know that Ill be seeing you down the road.
An ORourke spokesperson confirmed to Fox News that the candidate had ruled out running for the Senate next year, when Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, is up for re-election.
President Trump reacted to the news by tweeting Friday, Oh no, Beto just dropped out of race for President despite him saying he was born for this.I dont think so!
ORourke sought to make gun control a top issue in his campaign, most notably after the Aug. 3 mass shooting in his hometown of El Paso. He went so far as toembracethe confiscation of certain firearms, memorably saying in a Septemberdebate,Hell yes, we are going to take your AR-15.
The 47-year-old ORourke was urged to run for president by many Democrats who were energized by last yearsnarrow Senate inreliably Republican Texas. He raised an astonishing amount of money from small donors across the country, visited every county in the Lone Star Stateand used social media and livestreaming video to engage directly with voters. He ultimately lost toCruz by threepercentage points.

But ORourke struggled to replicate that model in the presidential primary and both his polling and his fundraising had dwindled significantly in recent months.
I am grateful to all the people who made up the heart and soul of this campaign, ORourke said on Twitter Friday. You were among the hundreds of thousands who made a donation, signed up to volunteer or spread the word about this campaign and our opportunity to help decide the election of our lifetime. Our campaign has always been about seeing clearly, speaking honestly, and acting decisively.
It comes as other candidates are fighting for survival in the race:Democratic presidential candidateKamala Harrisis dramatically cutting her staff and is closing campaign offices inNew Hampshire, to re-direct resources to Iowa.
