Howard Schultz Drops Out of Presidential Race

September 6th, 2019

Howard Schultz Drops Out of Presidential Race. The former Starbucks CEO has decided to end his run as an independent candidate. Schultz announced in January that he was considering running after leaving Starbucks in 2018. His campaign was halted in June following a back injury that required three rounds of surgery. His withdrawal will put many Democrats at ease, with many worrying a third-party interference would lead to Trump’s re-election. . My belief in the need to reform our two-party system has not wavered, but I have concluded that an independent campaign for the White House is not how I can best serve our country at this time, Howard Schultz, via HowardSchultz.com
