Key Points:

  • Elizabeth Warren quit the Democratic presidential race on Thursday, leaving Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders as the last major contenders battling for the nomination to challenge President Donald Trump this fall.
  • Warren’s exit came after the Massachusetts senator’s poor showings in crucial Super Tuesday contests. It leaves what was once a historically diverse Democratic field essentially narrowed to two white men in their 70s.
  • It was not immediately clear if the progressive Massachusetts senator planned to endorse one of her rivals, a move that could be pivotal as Biden and Sanders jockey for a delegate lead.
