A late entry into the 2020 Democratic field, Joe Sestak dropped his bid for the nomination on Sunday.

Sestak acknowledged his campaign's failure to find national support Sunday, saying, "Without the privilege of national press, it is unfair to ask others to husband their resolve and to sacrifice resources any longer".

You may not have been aware that Joe Sestak, a retired three-star admiral and former congressman from Pennsylvania, was running for president as a Democrat.

Qualcomm unveils Snapdragon 865: Everything we know so far
Qualcomm has not yet divulged full details of these two chips and what consumers can expect from smartphones powered by them. During the annual Snapdragon Tech Summit, Qualcomm today unveiled its upcoming flagship processor, the Snapdragon 865 .

On Twitter and in an email to supporters, Sestak voiced his gratitude for "this priceless opportunity as I end our campaign together". He recently completed a walk across New Hampshire to drum up interest in his campaign.

However, during his short campaign against several household names, Sestak failed to gain any real traction among the public and never qualified for a spot in any of the previous five Democratic primary debates. He served two terms in the House, 2007-2011. While Sestak defeated the Republican Specter, he lost in the parliamentary elections against the Republican Pat Toomey. He again prevailed against party leaders in 2016, seeking nominations to challenge Toomey's re-election, but lost primacy to the party's preferred candidates.
