Kamala Harris is ending her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.
She told supporters in an email Tuesday that she “simply doesn’t have the financial resources we need to continue.”
Harris launched her campaign in front of 20,000 people at a chilly, outdoor campaign launch in January.
The first woman and first black attorney general and U.S. senator in California’s history, she was widely viewed as a candidate poised to excite the same segment of voters that sent Barack Obama to the White House.
Harris publicly announced the end to her campaign on Twitter with an article posted to Medium.com.
“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
