It’s a day of exits.
The UK is exiting the European Union and, in the U.S., John Delaney has exited the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Delaney, who has spent the last three years of his life running for President (he was actually the first Democrat to declare), probably deserved better. He was one of the few moderates running this year and, unlike Joe Biden, he was capable of putting sentences together without turning into a raving lunatic or threatening voters. Unfortunately, Delaney also had all the charisma of a hard-working accountant and he never got above the fabled 1-2% mark in the polls.
With Delaney leaving the race, Maryland continues to come up short when it comes to producing successful presidential candidates. Hopefully, Larry Hogan will have more luck in 2024.
