WASHINGTON – Within hours of polls closing in New Hampshire, three Democratic presidential candidates called it quits, leaving behind a field with only one candidate of color and a solidified group of top contenders.

Entrepreneur Andrew Yang and Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., ended their campaigns nearly an hour after most polls closed Tuesday in New Hampshire. Wednesday morning, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick ended his campaign, after saying Tuesday he was going to discuss the future of his run with his wife. 

All three candidates pointed to their low finish in the first-in-the-nation primary state. Yang got 2.8% of the votes, while Patrick and Bennet got 0.4% and 0.3%, respectively. 

“You know, I am the math guy, and it is clear tonight from the numbers that we are not going to win this race,” Yang told supporters at an election night rally Tuesday evening.
