Kamala Harris Ends Presidential Bid

Sen. Kamala Harris dropped out of the 2020 Democratic presidential race Tuesday, ending a once-promising bid that failed to maintain momentum amid a crowded field of contenders.

“To my supporters, it is with deep regret—but also with deep gratitude—that I am suspending my campaign today,” the California senator tweeted Tuesday. “But I want to be clear with you: I will keep fighting every day for what this campaign has been about. Justice for the People. All the people.”

Harris’ announcement came after news that her campaign had canceled a big-dollar fundraiser scheduled for Tuesday.

The former California attorney general’s campaign kicked off with much fanfare, as she announced her bid for the Democratic nomination on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

But after a strong showing in the first presidential debate pushed her into the top tier of candidates, her poll numbers slowly declined as others such as Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren gained steam.

The first signs of the end came last week when a top Harris aide quit, blasting the campaign in a resignation letter for its turmoil and treatment of staffers.
