Ben Gleib ends his presidential campaign before 2020

Stand-up comedian and TV game-show host Ben Gleib has ended his quixotic bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, just two days before 2020.

Gleib, 41, never found a way to get traction for Gleib2020 in a crowded Democratic field.

Gleib wrote on Monday: “We don’t have a clear path forward anymore, so it’s time to say goodbye. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all who supported me. I have more to say than a standard concession speech. So I hope you watch this video.”
