Colorado Senator Michael Bennett, following businessman Andrew Young, announced his withdrawal from further participation in the election campaign for the right to become a Democratic presidential candidate. This was reported by CNN with reference to the statement of the senator.

The reduction in the number of Democratic presidential contenders coincided with the primary election in New Hampshire. The main rivalry in the primaries of the Democrats was between the Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, the ex-mayor of South Bend (Indiana) Pete Buttigieg, the Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, and the Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.





Young is still in eighth place (2.9%) of the vote, and Bennett in last, eleventh (0.1%).

New Hampshire primaries are the first in the current US election cycle. They select delegates who at the upcoming national congresses of the Republican and Democratic Parties will support one or another candidate for the presidential candidate from the party. The US presidential election will be held on November 3.

The number of Democrats-candidates for the presidency of the United States reached 11 people. Now there are nine.

Recall that earlier the Senate acquitted President Donald Trump. The results of the vote were long predicted and did not come as a big surprise.

Thus, Trump remains the president of the United States. Only one Republican voted against Trump — Mitt Romney.
