Marianne Williamson suspends presidential campaign

In the Nevada primary, Marianne Williamson, a well-known author and speaker, secured a distant third place with only 3% of the vote, while President Joe Biden overwhelmingly won with 89%. Notably, the option “none of these candidates” received 6% of the vote.

Despite facing difficulties in gaining momentum and resources, Williamson persisted with her 2024 White House bid. Her campaign struggled after a lukewarm reception in New Hampshire, but she managed to outperform Minnesota Rep. Dean Philips in the South Carolina Democratic primary, showing her resilience.

Williamson announced her candidacy in February 2023, advocating for change and challenging the status quo. She heavily invested in New Hampshire, but financial constraints became a significant challenge, with her campaign ending 2023 with considerable debts.

After the New Hampshire primary, Williamson had candid discussions with supporters about the future of her campaign, acknowledging the financial realities. Ultimately, she decided to continue her bid through the Nevada primary, despite acknowledging the challenges posed by well-funded opponents like Philips.

With a background as a bestselling author and philanthropist, Williamson’s campaign focused on progressive policies such as economic reform, peace initiatives, and healthcare expansion. Despite facing an uphill battle in the Democratic nominating contest, she remained committed to advocating for change and challenging the conventional political landscape.
