All signs, and a newspaper, point to 2020 candidate dropping out within hours

With an imminent announcement coming tomorrow, it looks as though one candidate will be saying ‘adios’ to the 2020 race.

The writing has been on the wall for a while, but now it looks almost official:  One of the democrats’ 2020 candidates is on their way out.

With nearly two dozen candidates in the race, it was about time for the field to begin whittling itself into a manageable slew of contestants – as opposed to the unwieldy litany we have been saddled with in recent weeks.

A great deal of these potential nominees have been polling in the low single digits for some time, with only Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and maybe Kamala Harris drawing enough support from the liberal base to be considered real contenders.

Former Congressman Beto O’Rourke ignored a call from the Houston Chronicle on Wednesday to exit the presidential race to run for Senate.

“Drop out of the race for president and come back to Texas to run for senator,” the Chronicle wrote in an editorial titled “Beto, come home.”

“The chances of winning the race you’re in now are vanishingly small. And Texas needs you,” it read.

Now, it looks as though Beto is heeding their call.

The profane, skateboarding sensation has failed to garner the sort of support that his congressional bid against Ted Cruz predicted, and is currently wallowing near the bottom of political polling.
