Spiritualist and self-help guru Marianne Williamson has dropped her bid for the presidency, ending the campaign of an idiosyncratic Democratic candidate who once won helped gay men dying of HIV/AIDS at the height of the epidemic.

Williamson also wished the remaining candidates the best and promised to be there "with all my energy and in full support" for whoever seals the nomination. "As the caucuses and primaries are about to begin, we will not be able to garner enough votes in the elections to raise our conversation more than it now is". Williamson has barely registered in the polls since launching their offer and has trouble collecting donations President last January.

The departure of Williamson leaves 13 candidates in the race, but only six have qualified for the debate next Tuesday in Iowa.

Her large following (her books have sold more than 3 million copies, and she is close with several celebrities) was enough to separate her from a pack of literally hundreds of other non-politicians waging quixotic presidential campaigns, as she and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang became the only two non-elected-officials to qualify for the first two debates.

She got attention in the following month's debate, too, when she said President Donald Trump had harnessed a "dark psychic force of collectivized hatred". Things are changing quickly and radically in this country, and I am sure that something is awakening among us.

Williamson announced her campaign to run for USA president on 29 January 2019. And today there's a new one: no I don't support Scientology.

"I stayed in the race to take advantage of every possible opportunity to share our message", Williamson said in a message on her website.

During the June Democratic debate, Williamson said she saw President Trump's election as a symptom of a spiritually diseased society and said only love could defeat him.

Centering her campaign on an "outside-the-box" agenda, Williamson called for infusing love with politics. The 67-year-old politician previously unsuccessfully ran as an independent candidate for California's 33rd congressional district in 2014. "And will prevail", Williamson wrote at the end of her statement on Friday.
