Marianne Williamson Suspends Her Presidential Campaign: ‘Love Will Prevail’

CEDAR RAPIDS IOWA- SEPTEMBER 20 Democratic presidential candidate and self-help author Marianne Williamson speaks at a LGBTQ presidential forum at Coe College’s Sinclair Auditorium

She was a long shot to win the nomination, but the faithful following for her spiritual guidance books helped her qualify for early debates in the crowded Democratic contest. "I feel that we have done that", said Williamson, who campaigned against trickle down economics and wanted to create a Departments of Peace and Children and Youth, invest in African American communities and combat climate change. Williamson has barely registered in the polls since launching their offer and has trouble collecting donations President last January. Her decision leaves 13 candidates remaining in the primary. According to the research giant, Williamson's main mainstream splash went through viral moments in the first two Democratic debates, gaining online support and inspiring a multitude of memes and making her one of the candidates the most googlées after the first debates.

Williamson, who took controversial positions on immunization and other health issues, became a leading candidate on Twitter in the second debate - when she warned that Trump was bringing "this dark psychic force of collective hatred" " in the country. "I stayed in the race to take advantage of every possible effort to share our message".


"As of today, therefore, I'm suspending my campaign", she added. In 2018, she spoke to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency about having recently attended High Holiday services at an Orthodox synagogue and visiting Israel many times in recent years. But as she grew a bit in stature, qualifying for several debates, advocacy groups began to point out her anti-vax stance, and her negative views on modern medicine, considering her more of a danger than the lark people were treating her as. There are now three major presidential candidates from the Republican party, including the current President Donald Trump, and 13 candidates from the Democratic party.

During her campaign she also released plans on "racial reconciliation and healing" and was a strong supporter of reparations for slavery, explaining that, on an "emotional, psychological and spiritual" level, the country couldn't afford not to pay them. "And yes ... love will prevail".
