Marianne Williamson, who launched a bid for the 2024 Democratic presidential nomination last year, has announced that she is suspending her campaign.
Williamson, whose campaign website describes her as “a bestselling author, political activist, and spiritual thought leader,” failed to gain traction against incumbent President Joe Biden, who appears poised to easily lock up the party’s 2024 presidential nod.
“First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you don’t win:)…” she wrote in a Substack post. “I appreciate greatly all the incredible people who accompanied me on our political journey over the last ten months. While the level of our failure is obvious to all, a level of success is real nonetheless. We articulated deeper, more authentic truths than those regularly acknowledged by the political establishment.”
“Although as of today we are suspending our campaign, our platform – with its deep dive into so many issues – will remain on Marianne2024.com. I hope future candidates will take what works for them, drinking from the well of information that we prepared. My team and I brought to the table some great ideas, and I will take pleasure when I see them live on in campaigns and candidates yet to be created,” she wrote.
Williamson previously mounted a White House bid during the last presidential election cycle but ultimately dropped out in early 2020.
Democratic Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota, who has also been running against Biden for the 2024 Democratic presidential nomination, has highlighted Biden’s apparent decline over time. “I’m not seeing cognitive decline,” Phillips told Sean Hannity, according to reports. “Of course, we’re seeing physical and communication decline.”
“I’m attacked for being honest and saying the quiet part out loud – the part DC insiders only do in private,” Phillips tweeted on Tuesday when sharing two video clips of Biden speaking. “I admire our President. I voted for him and campaigned for him. He has visited my home and been gracious to my family and our country. But shame on all of you pretending everything is ok. You are leading us – and him – into a disaster, and you damn well know it.”
