After announcing her campaign in front of a historic crowd of 20,000 Kamala Harris has ended her campaign.
The former prosecutor Kamala Harris announced her decision to suspend the campaign earlier today.
Harris stated that she did not see away forward. Going on to say she was not a billionaire and couldn’t fund her own campaign. A parting jab at billionaires Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg.
Kamala Harris campaign began unraveling when she cut staffers in October. Harris attempt to focus on Iowa left other states understaffed. Harris could not secure the funding necessary to continue her historic campaign.
During all democratic polling Harris maintained a steady pace. Always polling beneath Joe Biden, Elizabeth warren and Bernie sanders.
In an email to her supporters Harris stated “I have 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”.
Why is it so hard to finance a campaign?
As numerous candidates drop out of the race for president many are asking why is it so hard to fund a campaign? Corey booker ran into this same problem. Without adequate financial support booker put out an s.o.s earlier this year.
However, Booker weathered the storm. Harris didn’t believe it was attainable for her to do the same. Many are asking how candidates such as Tulsi Gabbard and Pete Buttigeig are still in the race.
People are speculating that Harris’s staff shake up in October caused a rift within her campaign. Making it easy for Michael Bloomberg to confiscate a senior staff member from harris’s campaign. Some already believed that the campaign was over. That harris’s staff was abandoning ship.
As one of the most vocal of the democratic candidates Harris will be sorely missed. The ability to keep the democrats on track while talking about the issues was her best quality. How long will it be before others who did not perform as well as Harris drop out?
