Hollywood guru Marianne Williamson on Wednesday suspended her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

In a video message announcing the end of her campaign, Williamson thanked her supporters and said "we did what we could to shed some light in some very darkened times. For that, I will always be so grateful."

"I wish I could give a personal hug to every person who encouraged me on this journey. So many had faith and believed in what was possible. While we did not succeed at running a winning political campaign, I know in my heart that we impacted the political ethers," she said in an accompanying statement. "As with every other aspect of my career over the last forty years, I know how ideas float through the air forming ever new designs."

"I will see and hear things in different situations and through different voices, and I will smile a small internal smile knowing in my heart where that came from. I am wishing you all the love in the world, with a thanks more sincere than you can possibly imagine. May love yet prevail, in our hearts and in the world," she concluded.

As of Wednesday, she averaged 6.5% support, according to RealClearPolitics, placing 65.8% behind President Joe Biden, but ahead of Minnesota Democratic Rep. Dean Phillips, who trailed with 3.8%.
