Marianne Williamson, the self-help author who once called for a federal Department of Peace, is no longer running for president.
Williamson announced the end of her campaign Friday in a message thanking her supporters. She said she accomplished her aim of taking advantage of every possible effort to share our message. That message largely centered around turning love into a political force.
Now, she said, she doesnt want to get in between the voters and the better-performing progressive candidates they may support once she moves on.
The ideas we discussed are important, and I hope theyll find seed in other ways and in other campaigns, Willaimson said, noting in particular her platforms that waged an agenda for peace and making humanity itself Americas greatest ally.
