Chris Dodd Pulls Out Of The Race

I can't tell you how bad I feel about the turnout for Sen. Chris Dodd. He has been such a champion of our values and his campaign and office have been the absolute best to work with.

It's a long video...but note that towards the end, Chris Dodd acknowledges we in the netroots and promises to continue to support us.

I will carry the determination and courage of this campaign, as well as the result-oriented leadership I offered, back to the important battles that need to be won for the future of our country.

As I have for 26 years, I intend to serve by building broad, bipartisan support for bold ideas rooted in Democratic principles, turning them into national policies.

I commit that the fights we've waged in this campaign will not end tonight, from our Constitution to reversing global warming.

Whether it is the dozens that worked the field...the hundreds that worked the phones...or the tens of thousands that took to the blogs, I will make sure that the voices that spoke with us in this campaign are not forgotten but amplified.

Not ignored - but championed.

Thank you, Sen. Dodd.
