Beto O'Rourke ends 2020 presidential bid
(CNN) -- Former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke announced Friday that he is ending his 2020 presidential campaign.
"Though it is difficult to accept, it is clear to me now that this campaign does not have the means to move forward successfully," O'Rourke said in a statement. "My service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee."
I am grateful to all the people who made up the heart and soul of this campaign. 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.— Beto O'Rourke (@BetoORourke) November 1, 2019
