Kirsten Gillibrand dropped out of the Democratic presidential race Wednesday, saying “it’s important to know when it’s not your time.”

The 52-year-old New York senator announced the end of her short-lived 2020 bid in a video posted to Twitter.

“I know this isn’t the result that we wanted. We wanted to win this race,” Gillibrand says in the video. “But it’s important to know when it’s not your time and to know how you can best serve your community and country.”

She added, “I believe I can best serve by helping to unite us to beat Donald Trump in 2020.”

Gillibrand did not immediately offer an endorsement for any of the other Democrats vying for the nomination to take on President Trump next year.
