President Candidate Unsuspends 2024 Campaign

Marianne Williamson relaunches presidential campaign after quitting via NBC News.

 


 

“As of today, I am unsuspending my campaign for the president of the United States,” Williamson said in a video posted to X. “I had suspended it because I was losing the horse race, but something so much more important than the horse race is at stake here, and we must respond.”

Williamson added that “we have a fascist standing at the door,” referring to former president Donald Trump’s presidential bid.

“We’re not going to defeat the fascist by — well, by what? What is President Biden offering?” Williamson said in the video.

Williamson has long supported universal health care and free tuition at public universities. She received 4% of the vote in the Democratic primary in New Hampshire and 2% of the vote in the primary in South Carolina.Despite having already withdrawn her candidacy for president, she declared her comeback on Wednesday after receiving 3% of the vote in Michigan’s Democratic primary, defeating fellow presidential contender Rep. Dean Phillips, D-Minn., who had received 2.7% of the vote with 95% of the anticipated votes counted.

In Michigan, Biden secured 81% of the Democratic primary vote, with 13% selecting “uncommitted” on the ballot.

Williamson stated before the New Hampshire primary that she thought Trump will prevail in the next general election.

“I do not have good feelings about what will happen in 2024, because 2024 is not going to be like 2020; 2024 is going to be like 2016,” she said at a town hall event in Portsmouth.

In her video Wednesday, Williamson said that to “respond to Donald Trump’s dark vision of possibility,” she would make an “economic U-turn,” to “make this country great again, to return it to a time when we actually had a thriving middle class.”

“Some people would say, ‘Oh, Miss Williamson, you’re delusional,'” she said. “I’ll tell you what’s delusional. What’s delusional is just crossing our fingers and just hoping that somehow Biden and Harris will be able to beat that juggernaut of dark, dark vision.”
