1. SOUNDBITE (English) Sen. Elizabeth Warren, (D) Massachusetts:
WARREN: "So I announce this morning that I am suspending my campaign for president. I say this with a deep sense of gratitude for every single person who got in this fight, every single person who tried on a new idea, every single person who just moved a little in their notion of what a resident of the United States should look like. I will not be running for president in 2020, but I guarantee I will stay in the fight for the hardworking folks across this country who have gotten the short end of the stick over and over. That's been the fight of my life, and it will continue to be. (REPORTERS SHOUT QUESTIONS, INAUDIBLE) Well, let's take a deep breath and spend a little time on that. We don't have to decide at this minute."
REPORTER: "And I wonder what your message would be to the women and girls who feel like we're left with two white men to decide between."
WARREN: "I know. One of the hardest parts of this is all those promises and all those little girls who are going to have to wait four more years. That's gonna be hard. (REPORTERS SHOUT QUESTIONS, INAUDIBLE) Not today. Not today. I need the space around this. And I want to take a little time to think a little more."
Elizabeth Warren says she will not be running for president in 2020 but guarantees that she will stay in the fight.
Speaking to reporters Thursday outside her home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Warren said she'd likely endorse one of the two major candidates left in the race, Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders, but "not today."
"I need some space and I need a little time right now," she said.
