Kamala Harris Drops Out Of Presidential Race

Kamala Harris was expected to drop out of the 2020 race on Tuesday

"And as the campaign has gone on, it's become harder and harder to raise the money we need to compete", she said in a statement to supporters. Her history as a prosecutor - and role in advocating for tough sentences for people of color - forced her to answer questions that voters looking for a candidate committed to criminal justice reform repeatedly asked.

Still, Harris was one of only seven candidates to qualify for the December debate.

"Her support, as small as it's been, was really spread evenly among different demographic groups", said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, whose last poll put Harris in five place with 5 percent, just ahead of Booker with 3 percent. "Her good work will continue".

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA - JULY 06: Kamala Harris speaks on stage at 2019 ESSENCE Festival Presented By Coca-Cola at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center on July 06, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Harris, was once considered a front-runner in the crowded Democratic field, is expected to end her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, according to a campaign official. Initially, her campaign was focused on SC, the first state with a large African-American population to vote in the Democratic primary. It's an answer you'd expect every candidate to know long before they make their announcement speech, but a surprising number of them don't.

Ms Harris, who had earned a nationwide reputation for her fierce grillings of Republicans during congressional committee hearings in Washington DC, was seen as a formidable candidate as the race began.

Harris accused Gabbard of spending "four years full time on Fox News criticizing President Obama".

The Golden State has not been competitive in general elections of late, and it's even further out of reach for Republicans in the era of President Trump. She has since visited immigrant detention centers and have been outspoken against the current administration.

The lawsuit alleged that female employees were discriminated against because of a sexist "bro culture" fostered at the company. The League of Legends developer will be paying every female employee that has worked under then in the last five years.

Second, Harris has a lifelong seat in the Senate if she wants it.

She tweeted today saying, "to my supporters, it is with deep regret-but also with deep gratitude-that I am suspending my campaign today".

It looks like her message didn't play well in Peoria. Additionally, she is against the death penalty and pro-choice.

Her campaign peaked in the summer after the first debate when she successfully attacked former vice president Joe Biden for his previous stance against federally-mandated busing to desegregate schools.

Harris is a California native, born to a Tamil Indian mother and Jamaican father.

Born in Oakland and raised mainly in Berkeley, Harris is the daughter of immigrants: Shyamala Gopalan, who was a breast cancer researcher from India, and Donald Harris, a Jamaican economist who taught at Stanford University.
