36. I'm saddened by this

I know her campaign was having some problems but this was still a suprise. I didn't care for her gotcha with Biden in the first debate, but that aside, I had a lot of respect for her. She was a strong, fearless candidate. I will never forget her kindness towards Beto when he ended his campaign a month ago. As a Beto supporter it meant a lot to me on a day when so many were dumping on him. Her campaign treated his staffers and supporters to dinner. She didn't have to do that and speaks volumes to her character.

And he had some kind words for her too.

Damn...will miss her voice in this race Docreed2003 Dec 2019 #1
