DEM Joe Sleestak drops out of the presidential race.

Awwwwwww...He was the one DEM I really liked!

DEM Joe Sleestak

Former Pennsylvania Rep. Joe Sestak on Sunday ended his long-shot 2020 presidential bid after failing to gain traction in the race for the Democratic Party's nomination.

"I want to thank you for the honor of running for President of the United States of America," Sestak said in a statement. "It has been an endeavor filled with immeasurable wisdom, passions, humor and insights to, and from, the people of America."

Sestak, who mounted unsuccessful bids for US Senate in 2010 and 2016, entered an already-crowded Democratic primary field in June hoping to leverage his career in the US Navy into a successful campaign, but did not qualify for any of the major Democratic presidential debates.
We will never forget, and are forever indebted to, Mr. Sleestak's endeavors of immeasurable wisdom, his passions, his humor and his insights.

...Oooooh...it's Sestak. Not Sleestak. I am all so wrong here.

Ha! That's what I called him when he was running for a senate seat against Pat Toomey. His views on Obamacare and gun control didn't play as well as he thought here in PA. I didn't even realize that he was running for the democrat nomination for president..........

Taminator, It sounds like a lot of people weren't aware he was running for president. Maybe he didn't know either?? :D All he had was the Sleestak vote anyway.
Thanks for dropping by.
