    Jay Inslee Dropping Out of 2020 Race

    Breaking: Jay Inslee tells @Maddow he’s dropping out of the 2020 presidential race. https://t.co/FS05Y2RX0w

    The Washington governor had centered his campaign around climate change, calling it “the most urgent challenge of our time.”

    Washington Gov. Jay Inslee is dropping out of the 2020 presidential race, he announced Wednesday night on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.”

    "It's become clear that I'm not going to be carrying the ball, I'm not going to be the president so I’m withdrawing tonight from the race," he told Maddow, vowing he'd help keep the other 2020 candidates focused on issue of climate change, the focal point of his campaign.

    He declined on Wednesday to throw support behind another candidate, but said, "I'm going to endorse the Democrat nominee, no matter who it is."

    Inslee had centered his candidacy around climate change, calling it “the most urgent challenge of our time.”

    “This is our moment to put the greatest threat to our existence, to our economy, to our health, at the very top of the nation’s agenda,” Inslee said in March at his campaign’s kickoff event in Seattle.

    He put out a detailed 10-year plan on how he’d move the country to clean energy, spurring other candidates to put out their own plans. Butting heads with the Democratic National Committee, he demanded that the organization hold a debate focused on climate change.

    The DNC rebuffed his pleas in June, but CNN announced soon after that it would hold a town hall on the issue with the 2020 candidates in September. Inslee, however, did not meet the polling criteria the network used for the event — a minimum of 2 percent in four DNC-recognized polls — and was not on the list of attendees the network announced on Tuesday.

    While Inslee said Monday that he had reached the 130,000 donation threshold for the next Democratic debate in September,his lack of qualifying polls would likely have kept him from the debate stage as well.

    He told Maddow he hopes other candidates can make use of his climate plan, which he said has been called "the gold standard."

    Other 2020 candidates were quick to praise his efforts.

    "Thank you @JayInslee for fighting every day to make sure that climate change remains a primary focus of this election. Climate change is real and it's a crisis—and I will keep fighting alongside you to take bold action before it is too late," tweeted Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

    "Few leaders have done more to shine a light on the climate crisis than @JayInslee," tweeted Sen. Kamala Harris of California. "His voice will be missed in this primary but I know he will continue this fight."

    Inslee is the third major candidate in the sprawling field to exit the race after Rep. Eric Swalwell of California and former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.

    Just saying that when AOC announced the concrete reality of her Green New Deal a number of young Dems in my orbit sort of gagged. They were picturing some sort of pastoral ideal. Which Green New Deal is assuredly NOT.

    blackjeep is right...we think he's an idiot here in Idaho. Folks from the Eastern part of Washington are moving out of that state; they want to get away from the stinking politics.

    I met him a couple times-super nice guy; but the global warming platform was a death from the beginning.
    I'd rather be paranoid, prepped and wrong than be irrationally happy, frivolous and screwed.

    Sung to the tune of "99 bottles of beer on the wall"


    25 Marxist scum in the race,
    25 Marxist scum,
    They all look tough,
    Then one blows up,
    24 Marxist scum in the race.

    Repeat as needed. I think we're "down" to 22 now.

    And on the downside he’s running for re-election for governor again. Damned either way.

    I'm glad he dropped out.
    Jesus didn't MERELY only physically "die on the cross". He so loved us that
    It was God, suffering, bearing the sin, shame, guilt and punishment
    for every single person who had, or would ever live.
    So Justice could be preserved, Enabling Grace and Mercy to all who believe.

    Twenty-two candidates stand on the stage,
    Twenty-two candidates speak,
    A foot in the mouth,
    The polling goes south,
    Twenty-one candidates stand on the stage.

    And that's easily more than half the original Dem field.

    At least in 2016, we recognized most of the names in the GOP clown car.
