I'll miss her. Unfortunately, though my views are most in line with hers, Carol Mosley-Braun stepped out of the race just now.
CARROLL, Iowa (CNN) -- Four days before the Iowa caucuses, Carol Moseley Braun dropped out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination Thursday, and threw her support behind former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean.
"I am here today to thank those Iowans who were prepared to stand for me in Monday's caucuses and ask that you stand instead for Howard Dean," Braun said.
Braun was joined during her announcement by Dean and Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin.
Before the announcement, a Democratic source said Braun felt it was time to quit because her campaign had not caught fire.
"Carol felt like she had done what she needed to do," the Democratic source said. "She did herself a lot of good in this race.
"She ran a good race and now she felt like it was time to hand it over to someone who can win. Those are the feelings that were expressed to me this evening."
