SHOW TRANSCRIPT

U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton is dropping out of the 2020 presidential race.

In an interview with The New York Times, Moulton said, "I think it’s evident that this is now a three-way race between Biden, Warren and Sanders, and really it’s a debate about how far left the party should go."

Moulton formally announced the end of his presidential bid during Friday's Democratic National Committee meeting in San Francisco.

The representative from Massachusetts entered the 2020 Democratic primary race back in April. 

But Moulton failed to garner enough support in the polls and fundraising to meet the thresholds necessary to qualify for the first round of debates in June and July. 

Moulton is the fourth Democrat to drop out of the 2020 race, behind U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Washington state Gov. Jay Insee.
