Pete Buttigieg drops out of 2020 presidential primary race


A senior campaign aide has announced that Pete Buttigieg is dropping out of the 2020 presidential primary race.

His decision to drop out of the race comes after former Vice President Joe Biden won a crushing victory in the South Carolina primary.

Saturday night's results are re-energizing a Biden campaign that had flagged in the first three nominating contests in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada.

Biden's renewed momentum would make it difficult for Buttigieg to win over moderate voters moving forward into Super Tuesday.

News Channel 3 will have local reaction to the announcement from Buttigieg's campaign tonight on News Channel 3 at 6:00 and 11:00.
