Sen. Kamala Harris dropped out of the 2020 Democratic primary on Tuesday.
This comes as Harris remained in the low single digits in national and early state polling and after multiple news reports detailing friction and an internal revolt among Harris’ campaign staffers.
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.https://t.co/92Hk7DHHbR
