Former Pennsylvania Rep. Joe Sestak on Sunday ended his long-shot 2020 presidential bid after failing to gain traction in the race for the Democratic Party's nomination.
"I want to thank you for the honor of running for President of the United States of America," Sestak said in a statement. "It has been an endeavor filled with immeasurable wisdom, passions, humor and insights to, and from, the people of America."
Sestak, who mounted unsuccessful bids for US Senate in 2010 and 2016, entered an already-crowded Democratic primary field in June hoping to leverage his career in the US Navy into a successful campaign, but did not qualify for any of the major Democratic presidential debates.
"The hour has become late to restore US leadership to this liberal world order, but Iraq is our lesson to remember," Sestak said in a video announcing his campaign in June. "Democrats and Republicans alike who cast their votes for the tragic misadventure in Iraq showed little understanding that while militaries can stop a problem, they can never fix a problem."

I guess he sucked up enough “campaign contributions” to live off for a while.
I did not know he was in the race. But what I do know is this thread me to good picture from the Saturday morning reality cartoon Land of the Lost, one of the sleestaks.
Hey, wasn’t the cashier at the 7/11 down the street also running?
He realized he’s always been in the Land of the Losers.
Vote for me, I'll set ya free!
Was he the guy in Li’l Abner?
Can we put the shrunken, bloody, severed head likeness of every democratic politician in a jar of pee so that we can see who they are and for comic relief. We could add a few drops of aborted baby blood for contrast and greater clarity.
(Don’t get all wee-wee’d up now)
He runs the bar in The Simpsons, no wait that’s Moe Syzlak
Come to think of it, the Sleestak would probably be preferable to 80% of the Democrat presidential candidates now running...
