Another Dem Bites The Dust, Bowing Out Over A Lack Of Momentum
It appears another Dem presidential candidate is taking the hint that they are not going to win in the upcoming primary. This time it was Kamala Harris. She claimed she was having financial issues, but her campaign also suffered from a lack of momentum.
“California Sen. Kamala Harris on Tuesday announced that she is withdrawing from the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, after failing to capitalize on early enthusiasm for her campaign and watching her poll numbers collapse.
“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,” Harris wrote in an email to supporters. “So, to you my supporters, it is with deep regret — but also with deep gratitude — that I am suspending my campaign today.”
An aide said Harris informed staff Tuesday she is ending her White House bid.”
Harris posted about it on Twitter:
“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”
“In her parting message, Harris cited a lack of financial resources, saying “I’m not a billionaire” – a not-so-veiled jab at former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and perhaps even her fellow Californian, Tom Steyer.
It is true that campaigns require resources to remain competitive, but running out of money is a symptom – not a cause – of more serious political ailments.
As with any other investor, political donors want to contribute to winning causes. No one wants to throw good money after bad. Donors are attracted to candidates with campaign momentum and a path to victory – and Harris didn’t have either one.”
