Kamala Harris Drops Out Of 2020 Democratic Race
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-California) informed campaign staff and Democratic officials that she is dropping out of the race.
Harris’ decision to drop out of the 2020 presidential election comes amid months of falling poll numbers after a strong start. She announced her decision to supporters in an email stating that her campaign lacked the financial resources to continue with the bid.
Harris wrote in her email:
A week of political news in your in-box.
We find the news you need to know, so you don't have to.
“Eleven months ago at the launch of our campaign in Oakland I told you all: ‘I am not perfect. But I will always speak with decency and moral clarity and treat all people with dignity and respect. I will lead with integrity. I will speak the truth.’
And that’s what I have tried to do every day of this campaign. So here’s the truth today.
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.
I’m not a billionaire. I can’t fund my own campaign. And as the campaign has gone on, it’s become harder and harder to raise the money we need to compete.
In good faith, I can’t tell you, my supporters and volunteers, that I have a path forward if I don’t believe I do.
So, to you my supporters, it is with deep regret — but also with deep gratitude — that I am suspending my campaign today.”
