candidates suspend campaign but do not quit


"Candidates who suspend their campaigns usually get to keep any delegates they’ve won and
can continue to raise money beyond what’s needed to retire their campaign debts. In
contrast, candidates who actually drop out of a race, usually have to forfeit certain
delegates and are limited in how they can raise future funds."

"and can continue to raise money"

If they have delegates, they can negotiate, barter, gain favors (donations?) or even jobs
for the use of those delegates.
