I actually found an earlier dropout, former WV State Senator Richard Ojeda, who entered the Democratic presidential race in November and dropped out in January:

Eric Swalwell becomes the second dropout.

I know it shouldn't have affected his chances, and probably didn't, but Swalwell's name is too hard to pronounce.

That's why I've never run for office.

[Reveal] Spoiler: It doesn't seem that hard... :)

So I guess Pete Buttigieg is out for the same reason?

I wish Gov. Hickenlooper would drop out of the Presidential race but not run for Senate.

Mike Gravel, former Senator from Alaska and oldest candidate (at 89) has dropped out of the Democratic Presidential race and endorsed Bernie Sanders (Gravel actually had over 65,000 donors to his campaign).

John Hickenlooper to end presidential campaign Thursday, sources say

We'll see if he changes his mind about a Senate run. Meanwhile Klobuchar and Buttigieg are still challenging to spell.
