New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s short-lived presidential campaign came to an end Friday morning. He dropped his campaign that had been going nowhere from the start, hitting peak failure when he was unable to meet the criteria to attend the third Democratic debate.
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, the Mayor declared his campaign was over.

Even NBC sent him off with a zinger:
De Blasio’s bid — launched in May — ultimately lasted just over four months and was largely mocked for most of its short life.
“I feel like I have contributed all I can to this primary election. It’s clearly not my time, so I’m going to end my presidential campaign,” de Blasio said.
There’s no need to lament or further criticize the mayor. He tried. He failed. Time to move on. The real question is which failing candidate is going to drop out next? (Please let it be Beto, please let it be Beto).
