“Getting out there, being able to hear people’s concerns, address them with new ideas, has been an extraordinary experience,”. “But I have to tell you, at the same time, I feel like I’ve contributed all I can to this primary election and it’s clearly not my time so I’m going to end my presidential campaign” de Blasio said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
His campaign lasted four months. According to many national polls, he was supported by only 1% of voters, and sometimes even less.
