California Senator Kamala Harris Is Officially Dropping Out Of The Democratic 2020 Presidential Race
California Senator and former presidential candidate Kamala Harris has officially dropped out of the Democratic presidential race. Kamala stunned the crowds as she publicly announced the end of her campaign, surprising many others as Harris was considered a top candidate for the Democratic party.
Taking to Twitter, Kamala released an emotional yet determine video on her departure of her campaign, further stating that she will still continue to fight no matter what.
“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,” Harris wrote to her supporters. “My campaign for president simply doesn’t have the financial resources we need to continue.”
Launching her campaign in January before a crowd of over 20,000 people in Oakland, Harris’s polls had significantly skyrocketed over the summer months. Her confrontation with former vice president Joe Biden over the issue of race at the first Democratic debate was pegged one of the most memorable moments of the campaign so far.
Unfortunately, her campaign did teeter in search of a solid identity, frequently changing its central message. In the last few months, Harris failed to raise money from donors and supporters, proving it difficult to maintain her frontrunner status. She turned to lay off staffers and constantly announcing a wave of new strategies designed to restart her campaign.
Harris stated that she was determined to focus heavily on Iowa, the country’s first caucus state. This statement quickly resulted in Kamala slipping further down in the polls. The California senator had spent Thanksgiving in Iowa with her family only days before dropping out of the race.
As 2020 quickly approaches, the presidential race is just heating up. What comes next for the year 2020? Only time will tell! Stay tune!
