Jay Inslee, the Washington state governor who began to contest against climate change, keeping White House campaign as the center of attraction he withdrew from contesting for 2020 U.S Democratic presidential nomination last evening.

While speaking on MSNBC, the 68-year-old Governor clarified that it was clear he would discontinue being party’s standard-bearer and has decided to pull out of the race. Inslee had submitted his bid for the nomination in March.

In an interview on MSNBC he said, “ It is clear that I won’t be holding the ball further, I won’t be the President so I decide to withdraw tonight from the race.”

Inslee’s pull-out has gotten the ranks of Democratic Candidate to 22. Various polls suggested him at the bottom in the run and he struggled to erupt from the last position. He is the second Democratic candidate within this month to pull out of the nomination following Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper who dropped out last Thursday.

Inslee had come up with an extensive plan in June in order to retrieve the position of leadership in the U.S with the struggle against climate change that incorporated various proposals to relocate a huge number of climate refugees along with efforts to prevent imports of fossil fuel.

His endeavours gained him a lot of appraisal from his fellow Democratic candidates competing in the Presidential race last night.

Senator Elizabeth Warren took to Twitter saying, “ Thankyou @JayInslee for fighting each day to maintain climate change a primary focus of the election.”

“There is no more important issue facing humanity,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders appreciating Inslee’s aim to fight climate change.

Inslee, on the other hand, vowed to carry on his struggle for political attention and action on climate change, pledging to pull the next president up handing him the Accountability for endorsing a plan.
