March 3rd was Super Tuesday. Several states held US primary elections for the upcoming elections in November. After the Primary votes were in, some changes occurred in Democratic nominee hopeful line up. Mike Bloomberg dropped out on Wednesday, March 4th,  and Elizabeth Warren the day after, March 5th. 

Bloomberg released the following statement on his Instagram. 

Three months ago, I entered the race to defeat Donald Trump, I’m leaving for the same reason. Defeating Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best shot to do it. It’s clear that is my friend Joe Biden.

The New York Times reported Warren’s statement. 

I know that when we set out, this was not the call you ever wanted to hear. It is not the call I ever wanted to make.

Other results of Super Tuesday are as follows. CNN reported that on the Democratic side, Joe Biden won in the majority of the voting states, winning 10.
