(RepublicanView.org) – Author Marianne Williamson has officially withdrawn her candidacy for the 2024 Democratic nomination after a substantial defeat by President Joe Biden in Nevada’s primaries.
Biden was projected to be the winner on February 7, the day after the primaries were held. It came shortly after Biden also clinched South Carolina’s Democratic primary.
Williamson said in a video on social media that her campaign successfully “shed light in some very darkened times.” However, it was rocked by a series of challenges over the short period that she campaigned. That included switching between three campaign managers and financial struggles. Her latest campaign manager, Carlos Cardona, quit the day after Williamson lost in New Hampshire.
Williamson officially launched her campaign in March 2023, four years after switching her party affiliation from “Independent” to “Democrat.” She claimed that her goal was to disrupt the “status quo.”
She previously worked as a spiritual leader for a Unity Church in Michigan, where she regularly drew about 2,300 attendees. The church separated from mainline Protestant congregations by combining elements of Christianity with mysticism. She resigned the same year that she announced her presidential candidacy.
Williamson has also written over a dozen books, most of which focus on her beliefs and self-improvement. One of her books, “Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of a Course in Miracles, received accolades from former TV show host Oprah Winfrey.
She joined fellow Democratic contender Dean Phillips in a debate ahead of New Hampshire’s primary elections in January. They hoped the event would help them gain an advantage over Biden. However, Biden still won the state’s Democratic primary.
Williamson also campaigned ahead of the 2020 primaries. However, her campaign struggled to gain sufficient funding, eventually leading her to fire her campaign’s entire workforce.
