She is yet to make a formal announcement, but the move was expected as she came third in the Super Tuesday primary in her home state of Massachusetts, behind former vice-president and Senator Bernie Sanders.

Despite joining the race early, she had struggled to garner support in the first wave of primary contests. She finished in a disappointing third place in the Iowa caucuses, fourth in both the New Hampshire primary and Nevada caucuses, and fifth in the South Carolina primary.

Other White House hopeful who had withdrawn are former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and billionaire Tom Steyer. Bloomberg, Buttigieg and Klobuchar endorsed Biden.

Her potential endorsement is highly sought after in the race and both Mr. Sanders and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. have spoken with Ms. Warren since Super Tuesday, when the end of her campaign appeared imminent.
