Washington Gov. Jay Inslee Withdraws From Presidential Race

Inslee, who centered his presidential campaign on fighting climate change, announced Wednesday evening on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" it's become clear that he won't win the Democratic nomination.
In a letter to supporters, Mr Inslee said he was not meeting the polling threshold set by the Democratic National Committee to qualify for debates in the fall, despite 130,000 campaign donors.
"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 centerpiece of his campaign.
Inslee made the announcement in an email to supporters one day after he withdrew from the White House race amid lackluster polling.
Inslee ran on a climate change platform, stressing the issue at campaign events across the country, in cable news interviews and in debates.
While he had qualified for the first two presidential debates this summer, Inslee struggled to gain traction in the crowded Democratic field and was falling short of the requirements needed to appear on two high-profile stages next month: the third DNC debate in Houston and a CNN town hall focused on climate change, Inslee's key issue. "I can assure you that I will continue to lead, to demand bold action, and to do everything in my power to ensure the fight to defeat climate change stays at the top of the national agenda".
Inslee passed the fundraising hurdle, but had not reached two percent in the polls as an August 28 deadline loomed.
Inslee also announced his decision to bow out of the race against President Donald Trump in a Twitter post on Wednesday.

"As we turn to the future, I will have more to say about what comes next for me in the days ahead". "And thanks to you, every candidate knows they have to have a robust plan to defeat the climate crisis". The bigger question Democrats have to ask is why governors like Inslee, John Hickenlooper, and Steve Bullock (so far) are getting pushed to the margins while Beltway establishment candidates have gained all the attention.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren also recognized Inslee's climate change initiative.
Several other Democratic candidates, including front-runner Joe Biden, have outlined similar goals of eliminating US emissions of the greenhouse gases scientists blame for the effects of climate change, like sea level rise, droughts, floods and more frequent powerful storms. "I'm very appreciative of the leaders who brought that into the national discussion". Together we will continue the fight to defeat the climate crisis.
