WASHINGTON (KXAN) — Cory Booker suspended his 2020 presidential campaign Monday, he announced via his Twitter account.

“It’s with a full heart I share this news — I’m suspending my campaign for president,” he wrote.

“To my team, supports, and everyone who gave me a shot—thank you,” he said.

Last week, Marianne Williamson bowed out of the Democratic primary race, and Julián Castro suspended his campaign earlier this month.

Andrew Yang tweeted his support of Booker, whom he called a “friend,” and “brother.”
