Lessig Pulls Out Of Democratic Race

Says getting into Democratic debates “was the essential step” in campaign to gain more visibility, to advance platform for “fixing our democracy first.”

Via Bloomberg:

“No doubt a better candidate could have gone further, though I doubt anyone could have worked harder, but regardless I must today end my campaign for the Democratic nomination and turn to the question of how best to continue to press for this reform now,” Larry Lessig says in video posted on YouTube.

“But last week, we learned that the Democratic Party has changed its rules for inclusion in the debate and under the new rule unless we can time-travel there is no way that I will qualify.”
