Sen. Elizabeth Warren dropped out the presidential race on Thursday after failing to win any states — including her home state of Massachusetts — on Super Tuesday, confirming the news in a Medium post her campaign then tweeted. Warren informed her staff of her decision Thursday morning.

“I know how hard all of you have worked. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything you have poured into this campaign,” she wrote in the Medium post, which echoed remarks given to her campaign staff.

Warren’s announcement follows that of former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, who suspended his campaign Wednesday morning. In the days prior, former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar also suspended their campaigns, endorsing Biden shortly thereafter.

With their wins on Super Tuesday, Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders have become the two clear frontrunners for the Democratic nomination. As of Thursday, Warren has not endorsed either candidate.

Both men praised Warren after her announcement.

Joe Biden tweeted, “Senator @EWarren is the fiercest of fighters for middle class families. Her work in Washington, in Massachusetts, and on the campaign trail has made a real difference in people’s lives. We needed her voice in this race, and we need her continued work in the Senate.”

Bernie Sanders tweeted, “.@ewarren has taken on the most powerful corporate interests because she cares about those who have been left behind. Without her, the progressive movement would not be nearly as strong as it is today. I know that she’ll stay in this fight and we are grateful that she will.”
