Former Pennsylvania Rep. Joe Sestak has officially dropped out of the 2020 presidential race after struggling to rise in the polls. On Sunday, he released a statement on Twitter to thank his supporters for standing by his campaign.

“I want to thank you for the honor of running for President of the United States of America,” stated Sesak. “It has been an endeavor filled with immeasurable wisdom, passions, humor and insights to, and from, the people of America.”

Sestak entered the crowded Democrat primary race last June, which was one week before the first round of presidential debates. His departure leaves the total number of Democrat candidates left in the field at just 17.
