Sen. Elizabeth Warren has elected to end her campaign to become the 46th President of the United States. The decision comes after a less than stellar performance on Super Tuesday. Most notably, she lost a primary election in her home state of Massachusetts, where she currently serves as a U.S. Senator and has taught at Harvard in Cambridge. Warren now joins a growing list of candidates that have dropped out in the last two weeks that includes Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer.

With Warren out of the race, the field shrinks down to a list of three viable candidates on the Democratic side. Leading the way, former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders stand out as the front runners. Following behind, Tulsi Gabbard still persists with her campaign despite earing only one delegate on Super Tuesday.
Moving forward, Sanders and Biden will look to pick up delegates during key primaries in states like Michigan and Missouri. The next debate will take place in Phoenix on March 15th on CNN.
