Shakeup In Marianne Williamson Campaign

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

What a day for the Democratic presidential candidates.

The race has really been shook up with the news of Julian Castro dropping out and now this.  Eye roll.

This looks like it is the beginning of the end.  But was there ever really a beginning?

Marianne Williamson, the new age spiritual self-help guru and author, has laid off her entire campaign staff.  She has been unable to turn love into a political force.

The New York Post reports,

Still, Williamson, 67, has no plans to drop out of the race, the sources said.

About 45 staffers had been employed in the four early voting states and Williamson’s central campaign headquarters, according to the outlet.

The campaign announced in October that it had raised $6.1 million in 2019 — but had only just over $650,000 left in its coffers.

I don’t think the universe was conspiring for Williamson or her staffers today.  But perhaps for America.

So, it’s only a matter of time now before she drops out.  Mad props to Marianne!

Who would’ve thought she would outlast Julian Castro, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Bill De Blasio, Kristen Gillibrand, and 21,000 other candidates in Democratic field.
