Sen. Kamala Harris Drops Out of 2020 Presidential Race

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., announced Tuesday that she is dropping out of the 2020 presidential race — even though she qualified for the upcoming Democratic debate on Dec. 19 in Los Angeles — because of single-digit polling numbers and an inability to connect with more Americans with her messaging.

“To my supporters, it is with deep regret—but also with deep gratitude—that I am suspending my campaign today,” Harris tweeted. “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.”

In a Medium post attached to the tweet, she wrote: “I’ve taken stock and looked at this from every angle, and over the last few days have come to one of the hardest decisions of my life. My campaign for president simply doesn’t have the financial resources we need to continue.”

The Washington Post reported that even after raising about $12 million in each of the year’s first three quarters, this quarter had fallen behind drastically. The money was running out.

“No matter your candidate, you have to recognize that going from the most diverse field ever in January to a potentially all-white debate stage in December is catastrophic,” Leah Greenberg, co-founder of Indivisible, told the Post. “We need leaders who represent the diversity of our party.”

On Tuesday, presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden told reporters he has “mixed emotions” about Harris’s departure.

Despite her departure from the race for the highest office in the country, Harris could still become a running mate for one of the stronger presidential candidates.
