Seth Moulton, a three-term congressman from Massachusetts, ended his presidential campaign on Friday, August 23, and said that he would seek re-election to Congress.
Moulton is a Marine Corps veteran who served four tours in Iraq. He announced his presidential aspirations in April.
"I am running because I am a patriot, because I believe in this country and because I have never wanted to sit on the sidelines when it comes to serving it," Moulton said on ABC's "Good Morning America."
Moulton has seen a raised national profile in recent years as he tried — and failed — to oust Nancy Pelosi from House Democratic leadership. He later voted for Pelosi's speakership after Democrats retook the House in 2018.
