Moseley Braun to Quit Presidential Race

Thursday, January 15, 2004



Former Illinois Sen. Carol Moseley Braun (search) is ending her historic presidential bid, Fox News has confirmed. Sources have told Fox News she intends to endorse former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (search).

With the clock winding down to the nationís first presidential caucus in Iowa next week, Moseley Braunís withdrawal winnows the crowded field of Democratic contenders to eight. The only major black woman presidential candidate in history, her decision to throw her support behind Dean may prove a helpful boost in what has been a week of fever-pitch attacks against the front-runner.

Requests for comment to the Moseley Braun campaign were not immediately returned. Officials close to the Dean campaign confirmed to the Associated Press that they expected Braunís official endorsement on Thursday in Iowa. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity.

The officials said Braun approached Dean after a recent debate and told him she was considering dropping out and supporting his candidacy instead. During Sundayís debate in Des Moines, Moseley Braun stepped in several times to defend the Dean against attacks by Al Sharpton (search).

The Moseley Braun campaign has virtually no organization or campaign cash left. She never broke out of single digits in national surveys, didn't qualify for several state ballots and ran up thousand of dollars in campaign debt. Even her own campaign manager, Patricia Ireland, had said publicly there was no way Braun could win the nomination.

Moseley Braun became the first African-American woman elected to the U.S. Senate in 1992. Representing Illinois, she was the first permanent woman member of the Finance Committee, a member of the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee and a member of the Special Committee on Aging. After a term haunted by scandals, she lost her bid for reelection to Republican Peter Fitzgerald in 1998.

Moseley Braun did not have a major impact in the race for the Democratic nomination, but some political observers have viewed her presidential candidacy as an effort to reform her reputation.

beneficiaries here:  Dean he gets an endorsement from it, which no surprise as she has been giving him softballs int he debates anyway.

And sharpton as now he is only black candidate and may help in a  close race in the south.

You mean polling in the low single digits came as a shock to her?!

Do not fight with one another over my banning.  I've enjoyed the time I have spent with all of you, but the time really has come for me to leave.  It is what I want.

Her candidacy was a joke anyway.  She was considering running for her senate seat again.  Then she said she didn't have enough money and so ran for President after talking to McAullife.  It was all a set up, to discriminate against Al! Smiley

Well being a big fan of the Presidents since i have met him and seen he is a genuine mana nd leader he has my vote.

However, I think Edwards would make the best foe (for the democrats) vs Bush, but I don't see him getting the nomination.  I have said over and over he should have waited until 2008, but he would have had a tough senate fight.

He looks young, is energetic, been running a positive campaign, can play to the Southa nd at least understand them and evenif can't win, would be able to help down ticket as he could relate to him int he South at least.  PLus if he wanted he could use his wealth if he needed.


I WANT the dems to nominate Dean though.  If the dems do it, he will lose and for sure cost the Dem seats in the South with his rhetoric.  

Lieberman would make a good prez, but dems will never nom him.  Same with Al and Kucinich--no chance.  

Gephardt could be a formidable foe but so establishment and everyone knows him as a failure inthe House on delivering.  

Clark-- As a fellow army officer, this guy is a joke.  How did he make general.  I do believe he stepped on others to get to the top as I always heard in army circles.  Plus he is Mr Conspiracy Theory and never can back it up and that further hurts his credibility which is already in question by 2 well respected generals.  

Kerry-- Well he has blown it I think.  Could make it, but the guy just always looks tired and worn out.  Then I have looked at his political record and tried hard to find meaningful accomplishments and there are few for 19 years int eh senate.  I do like his military record, but not that he then came home and protested.


Nader- may run or not, depends on nominee.  I am more Green than some republicans therefore i do like some of his ideas on environment, but not all.  (Did all dems thought I might as well do this one too)

But Braun isn't really seen as a leader of black america either.  

Plus I saw Rev Jesse Jackson with Wes Clark the other day.

But she's something.  Many other black leaders, like Sharpton and Jackson, are reverse-racists.

I would agree with that.  But interesting split as Jesse jackson jr endorsed dean, but dad seems to be with clark.
