  • Washington Gov. Jay Inslee says he’s ending his 2020 Democratic presidential bid

"This show has been so good to me, this is sort of the bookends of my campaign", Inslee, who built his campaign on the climate change "crisis", said.

"I think we're going to be just fine ultimately", he said. "Our great success as a state these last few years gives me confidence that we can continue to lead the nation in so many ways".

"As a result, I don't believe we can compete for the attention and exposure needed to have a reasonable shot at the nomination", he said.

MI was a frequent visit for Inslee on the campaign trail.

Higher polling Democratic hopefuls were quick to praise Inslee after he announced his withdrawal.

And there was a list of Democrats who had talked about running for attorney general and public lands commissioner.

Franz said Wednesday night that she's not disappointed that she won't be entering the governor's race, saying that she loved her current job and has "a lot of work to do".

GOP party chairman Caleb Heimlich re-upped those criticisms Wednesday night.

"Getting elected to a third term is a tough task", he said. But his message failed to boost his candidacy in the polls.

Inslee was the first governor to declare a run for the White House in March. No GOP candidate has won an election for governor in the blue state in more than three decades. The last governor to win a third term in the state was Republican Gov. Dan Evans, in 1972.

His departure from the race after former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Rep. Eric Swalwell of California dropped out.

He had recently hit one of the markers - 130,000 unique donors.

Inslee passed the fundraising hurdle, but had not reached two percent in the polls as an August 28 deadline loomed.

His polling struggles also prevented him from participating in a CNN town hall-style event on climate change, his signature issue.

Inslee was a champion for the clean energy industry in Congress and wrote a book on the topic.

Scientists say that humans have a limited window to stem greenhouse emissions in order to keep temperatures from rising more than 1.5°C by the end of the century; if they don't, climate scientists have concluded, the warming planet will drive hundreds of millions of people into poverty and destroy the world's coral reefs, among other unsafe effects. On the day he announced his presidential bid, the state Senate passed a key piece of his legislative climate agenda, a measure that seeks to eliminate fossil fuels like natural gas and coal from the state's electricity supply by 2045.

Inslee touted himself as one of the only candidates to run on a climate change platform.

"We're facing a climate crisis, and we must summon the courage to confront it before it's too late". During a five-day trip there earlier this month, voters repeatedly told me that they were eager to evaluate candidates' positions on climate change even if they would not vote exclusively on that one issue.
