Bennet has always been considered a rising Democratic star and was eyed as a more-than likely presidential contender.
"While there is great work left to be done, you know I am the math guy, and it is clear tonight from the numbers that we are not going to win this race".
Entrepreneur Andrew Yang has dropped out of the Democratic race only moments before results were announced in Tuesday's New Hampshire primaries, according to a tweet from PBS NewsHour's Yamiche Alcindor.
Kicking off his vibrant campaign on Joe Rogan's podcast in February past year, Yang became best known as a passionate advocate for the universal basic income, calling for the government to provide each adult American with $1,000 per month.
Yang grew his outsider candidacy by campaigning as a non-politician, someone who mixed unconventional campaign events - from bowling to axe throwing - with serious talk about the millions of jobs lost to automation and artificial intelligence and the dark outlook for American jobs and communities.
Following his announcement he was dropping out from the presidential bid, he also shared his thanks for the many people in his corner.
Sen. Michael Bennet is ending his bid for the White House. The former two-term governor of MA entered the race less than three months ago, a late launch that resulted in his failing to ever make a debate stage.
"We weren't able to get much in the way of name identification in the state", Bennet said shortly after polls closed in New Hampshire. We are facing the most consequential election of our lifetime. I mean, he's the nonwhite candidate in the field, and he's now out.

Graumann would not say who, if anyone, Yang would endorse, but did say he planned to support whoever Democrats nominate to go up against President Trump.
