Democrat Pete Buttigieg exited the 2020 presidential primary race on Sunday, ending an unlikely campaign that saw a little-known mayor overpower governors and U.S. senators in the race for the party nomination.

"Today is a moment of truth," Buttigieg said from South Bend, Indiana, where he served as mayor for two terms.

Buttigieg said he had a responsibility for considering "the effect of remaining in this race any further.".

"Our goal has always been to help unify Americans to help defeat Donald Trump and to win the era for our values.

Biden's renewed momentum would make it difficult for Buttigieg to win over moderate voters moving forward into Super Tuesday.

It also caused some financing trouble: In the wake of Biden's victory, bundlers working for his campaign were able to lure some donors who had been backing Buttigieg, CNBC reported.

Earlier on Sunday, on NBC's "Meet the Press," host Chuck Todd pressed Buttigieg about his decision to stay in the race. »
