Andrew Yang QUITS Democratic 2020 race

Andrew Yang's crowd chanted '2024!' as the presidential hopeful officially dropped out of the race Tuesday night.  

Yang announced he was suspending his campaign as the results of the New Hampshire primary trickled in, putting him in eighth place in the Granite State. 

Minutes after Yang gave his final campaign speech, Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado announced he was dropping out of the race too, becoming the 20th Democrat to do so.

Bennet had a steep hill to climb, announcing his bid in May 2019, after many of the front-running candidates were already in. Like his fellow U.S. senators, he was also kept off the campaign trail in the vital weeks leading up to last Monday's Iowa caucuses thanks to President 's impeachment trial. 

In New Hampshire, Bennet got help from longtime Democratic strategist James Carville, but it didn't do enough to keep him in. 

'I love you New Hampshire, I do,' Bennet told his crowd Tuesday night. 'Whether you knew it or not, we were having a great time together,' he joked.  

Yang also had a tough fight - having never held elected office.  

'My goal when I first started running was to solve the problems that got Donald elected,' Yang told his supporters, adding that he would support whomever the Democrats choose to take on the president.
