On Tuesday, Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris announced she was suspending her campaign and has dropped out of the race.
She took to Twitter saying:
To my supporters, it is with deep regret—but also with deep gratitude—that I am suspending my campaign today. 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.
Harris said in her statement to supporters that her campaign did not have the the financial resources they needed 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,” said Harris.
Before joining the Senate, Harris was twice elected Attorney General of California, an agency of 5,000 staff and the largest state Department of Justice in America. A career prosecutor, Harris has spent her career fighting on behalf of the people — taking on big banks on behalf of homeowners, pharmaceutical companies on behalf of patients and consumers, and for-profit colleges on behalf of students.
