"And I'm okay with that".
Wynne, however, said she'd still be on the campaign trail advocating for candidates in local elections "through until that last vote is cast".
The Liberals have been trailing the NDP and PCs in the polls, and Wynne admits her party can not win the June 7th vote.
"If your concern is that you'd be electing me or electing a Liberal government, that's not going to happen", she said.
Meanwhile, Windsor-Tecumseh candidate Remy Boulbol said in a written statement that Wynne has been an "inspiration to me as a woman looking to enter politics", and that the Liberal platform remains best for Ontario. "Who mused about selling cannabis in corner stores - where our kids shop".

"She's demonstrated today that she speaks directly to the people", he said. "And we can't afford to send our children to even more crowded schools with even fewer teachers".
Surrounded by candidates, Ontario Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford glances at a teleprompter as he takes questions from reporters at a tightly-scripted news conference in Ottawa on June 2, 2018.
"It is hard to hear that", said Ottawa-Centre candidate Yasir Naqvi, who heard about the comments on a conference call only a short time before Wynne went public.
"This election is about change", he said, repeating promises to cut hydro rates, income tax and the price of gasoline, and staring occasionally at a teleprompter.
