Kamala Harris to Withdraw From 2020 Presidential Race, Sources Say

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

One problem, though, stands out: As appealing as she may have been in many ways, Harris was never able to explain why she was running for president.

She rocketed toward the top of the field with a promising campaign launch in January, but saw her prospects slide in recent months as she struggled to define her positions on various domestic issues including healthcare.

Kamala may have been a cop, but when I look over the landscape, she's not the pig I'm seeing.

Harris responded by tacking to the left on the campaign trail, but that ceded much of the middle ground to competitors like Biden and Mayor Pete Buttigieg. The 1,500 sent to prisons, however, were state-wide and it's not clear how many, if any, were prosecuted by Harris herself.

She tweeted today saying, "to my supporters, it is with deep regret-but also with deep gratitude-that I am suspending my campaign today. I knew I wanted to protect people", Harris told the crowd at her first campaign speech.

Ms Gabbard cited Ms Harris's previous opposition to the introduction of advanced DNA testing into the Californian judicial system, which Ms Gabbard claimed could have "freed" Kevin Cooper, an African-American man on death row. For progressives, however, it was an uncomfortable fit. Kamala Harris speaks in Atlanta, on November 21, 2019.

Harris qualified for the December debate, which will be held in her home state.

Specifically, one fan chose to use Twitter and ask the Avatar Twitter account if the Avatar trailer would be coming any time soon. Kate Winslet , Cliff Curtis, Oona Chaplin, Edie Falco, Brendan Cowell, Michelle Yeoh, and Jemaine Clement are also on board.

Harris, 55, the only minority woman in the race, would have been the first woman and second black USA president if elected next November.

Now questions will shift toward her viability as a vice presidential nominee - a natural next step in the 2020 presidential contest, given California's 55 Electoral College votes and Harris' still-formidable political profile. "And that little girl was me. We have to act swiftly".

Danielle Moodie-Mills, radio host of #WokeAF, said last week the former vice president who enjoys widespread name recognition is a safe bet with many black voters. "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. Harris being accused of manufacturing a moment where there was little policy difference between the vice president and her.

Kamala Harris was once considered a top contender to take on Donald Trump. There had also been reports of bitter in-fighting among factions in the campaign.

In July, she got in a debate spat with former vice president Joe Biden over his previous support for busing that gave her candidacy a boost, but her campaign was unable to sustain the momentum, in part, because a few minutes of passionate outrage isn't reason enough to elect someone president.

In her resignation later, Harris pointed toward fundraising being the biggest obstacle that kept her from moving forward.
