U.S. Senator Kamala Harris ending 2020 presidential bid, source says

Democratic presidential hopeful U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris rides on her campaign bus to a campaign event in Storm Lake

Kamala Harris of California announced Tuesday she is dropping out of the Democrat presidential primary, ending a campaign that has fallen short of expectations for months.

The California Democrat told her senior staff of the decision overnight, and later sent an email to supporters and published a Medium post.

"I'm not a billionaire", she said. And I will keep fighting every day for what this campaign has been about.

The event felt like the beginning of something big - a presidential campaign with money, national organisation and a young, charismatic candidate whose background was as diverse as the party she wanted to lead.

Harris wrote in the email, "To you my supporters, it is with deep regret - but also with deep gratitude - that I am suspending my campaign today". "I can't fund my own campaign", she wrote to supporters. That was illustrated by the response to Harris's attack on Biden during the June 27 Democratic debate over his opposition to mandated school busing and his fond reminiscences of an era in which senators worked across the aisle, including with colleagues whose views would now be considered racist.

Harris had struggled financially in recent months as her online fundraising slowed and her large donors increasingly turned away from her campaign. Harris was dogged from the start by the fact that leftists saw her as a cop, meaning she was never going to dig into the Warren/Sanders support. As a wise woman I saw on Twitter and forgot her name once said, "Behind every insane woman is a crazy-making man". "I know she will continue to fight fearlessly on behalf of the American people - and our democracy". Kamala's mother was a breast cancer scientist who immigrated to the United States from Madras, and her father was an economics professor at Stanford, who immigrated from Jamaica in 1960.

Reds ink Mike Moustakas to four-year, $64 million deal
The Cincinnati Reds and the infielder agreed to a four-year, $64-million contract, sources told Jeff Passan of ESPN . Moustakas, 31, hit.254 with 35 homers, 87 RBI and an.845 OPS for the division rival Milwaukee Brewers last season.

"If the Democratic Party wants a field that's representative of its members and its voters, it probably shouldn't have two states as white as Iowa and New Hampshire vote first every year", read the missive from Nate Silver, the editor-in-chief of news website FiveThirtyEight.

Oh, there was some pretext to justify this: Before running for Senate, Harris had been a California prosecutor, starting as an assistant district attorney in San Francisco in 1988 and winning election as state attorney general in 2010.

There are a number of reasons to which you could point to explain her difficulties.

Harris is one of the biggest names to date to drop out of the race, along with former congressman Beto O'Rourke of Texas and NY mayor Bill de Blasio.

Harris had qualified to appear at the next Democratic primary debate in Los Angeles on December 19, however.

ORIGINAL: Kamala Harris is already a remarkable woman and is ready to prove she'll make a remarkable president. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Still, the decision to drop out was abrupt.
