New York Mayor Bill de Blasio dropped out of the 2020 presidential race on Friday, ending a lengthy bid for a Democratic nomination that never went anywhere.
"I feel that I have made every effort to make this primary election and it is obviously not my time, so I will end my presidential campaign," de Blasio said in an interview with MSNBC's Morning Joe. "
" We have a chance to fix it in 2020, "Blasio added." Whoever our nominee is, let's make sure we talk to the hearts of working people. "
De Blasio said that" today "Will not support any of his fellow candidates, but that he will" think about it "in the future. He added that" of course "he would support" any possible nominee. "
In a piece for" The thought of NBC News' de Blasio explained that he would continue to "fight for working people and ensure that New York remains the forefront of progressivism will continue to be mine missions. "

De Blazio's auction – launched in May – eventually lasted a little over four months and was largely mocked for most of his short life.
It was widely unpopular in New York, with a Quinnipiac poll in April showing that more than three-quarters of New Yorkers felt they should not run, and faced a solid upward climb in a crowded field of Democratic candidates.
De Blasio tried to apply for achievements, including the introduction of a universal preschool and to help raise the minimum wage to $ 15 an hour.
But his campaign never started. The choice of national polls showed him that he was detained with only 1 percent support – and often times less. A Siena College poll released earlier this week showed it a 0 percent rate, even in New York.
De Blasio failed to qualify for the Democratic debate earlier this month and was almost certain that he failed to qualify for the one scheduled for October.
His short campaign was littered with rarely attended events and many unreported mistakes.
He made headlines in August after an event in Iowa attracted only about 15 people.
De Blasio tried to use Twitter for branding. Trump as "ConDon", but this also attracts ridicule because it means a condom in Spanish.
And he continues to win the contempt of his New York colleagues for being in the campaign during the New York crises
Even his entry into the race in May was fraught with challenges: A Missouri teenager stole spotlights from his campaign when he scoops up the message from the mayor of New York.
In dropping out, de Blasio joins a growing list of candidates who completed their applications early – and on their own terms.
Last month, Senator Kirsten Gilibrand, D-N.Y., Announced that he was terminating his bid for president. Earlier, Washington Governor Jay Inley, of Massachusetts, respectively. Seth Molton, former Colorado Gov. John Hicklenup and California's Eric Swolwell, also left the Democratic race. There are still 17 people in the Democratic field.
