Presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke announced on Friday that he would be ending his campaign for the Democratic nomination for President.
O'Rourke's campaign, which began on March 14, 2019, was facing declining poll numbers and financial problems, despite raising $6.1 million on the first day of his campaign.
O'Rourke, speaking to a group of supporters, pledged to support the eventual Democratic nominee “with everything that I’ve got,” adding, "I will still be part of all the causes that brought us here together in the first place."
