Marianne Williamson interrompe la sua campagna elettorale presidenziale.

Marianne Williamson, a 71-year-old author and former Democratic presidential candidate, announced on Wednesday night that she is suspending her campaign for president. In a video posted on social media, Williamson stated that “it is time to suspend my campaign for the presidency.” She also expressed gratitude for the opportunity to shed light in difficult times.

Williamson’s decision came after a defeat in the Nevada Democratic primary, where she was soundly defeated by President Biden. She had launched a longshot bid to unseat Mr. Biden from his incumbent bid for the White House last year, along with Rep. Dean Phillips. While Mr. Biden refused to debate his challengers, Williamson and Phillips debated in New Hampshire on Jan. 8, hoping to win with Mr. Biden absent from the ballot. However, a successful write-in effort on behalf of Mr. Biden by allies in New Hampshire secured him a victory, effectively ending Williamson and Phillips’ campaigns.

Phillips, who remains in the race, praised Williamson as a woman of courage, strength, and compassion for the country. He also expressed his honor to have run alongside her and promised to carry their shared principles forward.

This is not the first time Williamson has run for president. She also ran in the 2020 Democratic primary, but dropped out after failing to meet fundraising and polling thresholds for all but the first debate. This campaign cycle, she faced challenges such as rotating between three different campaign managers and laying off her entire staff.

Carlos Cardona, Williamson’s most recent campaign manager, left her campaign the day after the New Hampshire primary. Despite these setbacks, Williamson’s message of love and compassion resonated with many voters, and she will be remembered as a courageous and compassionate candidate.
