Well, this certainly caught me by surprise.

Sen. Kamala D. Harris of California announced that she is ending her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

In a note to supporters, Harris wrote that “my campaign for president simply doesn’t have the financial resources we need to continue.”“It is with deep regret — but also with deep gratitude— that I am suspending my campaign today,” she wrote. “But I want to be clear with you: I am still very much in this fight.”

Harris had qualified for the December debate but was in single digits in both national and early-state polls.

Harris, 55, entered the race a rising star. Her January announcement rally in Oakland drew more than 22,000 people. Trump, himself, praised Harris at the time for having the “best opening so far” and a “better crowd, better enthusiasm” than the other Democratic candidates.

Harris got some early buzz after that first debate for taking on Joe Biden, but it did not seem to last.

Harris is, however, the first candidate to drop out while still near the top of the pack. (The most recent polls show her consistenly at around 6th place.)

I never really thought she had much chance of winning but I found her advocacy for teachers in this counry most welcome.

I think that whoever wins might consider Harris for the Attorney General position. 

She would straighten the Justice Department out in about a day.

    Sorry to see her go, she has a lot to offer but her decision makes perfect sense. She’d be a force to reckon with in the cabinet of whoever lands the top job.

    I agree, she would be a great choice for AG!

    I just saw the news about Kamala Harris withdrawing and all I can think is I would love to live in a country where extremely qualified, brilliant black women could go further in presidential politics than otherwise mediocre white men with a pile of money.

    I had a Harris campaigner knock on my door here in Iowa just last week. I’m already committed to Warren, but I did like Kamala.

    There’s nothing like a smart, tough, black lady as the antidote to Trump. It would have been most satisfying to see her kick his ass.

    I always thought she was better in the Senate.

    As a recent expat of California, I’m glad she is out of the running for President. She was known for being awful to her staff while in office. She was the same with her campaign staff. That won’t do. But I can see her in DOJ or HEW.

      I work under a manager much the same.
      As a female myself, “what are you trying to prove?”

    Trump’s nomination of federal judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court in 2018 launched a bitter partisan fight that grew even more polarized when Christine Blasey Ford said Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her in high school. Kavanaugh was ultimately confirmed and now sits on the Court. The Washington Post’s Ruth Marcus details his rise in a new book she discusses with Judy Woodruff.

    She smacked down little donnie when he wrote on twitter she dropped out and we will miss you, her response was great: don’t worry I’ll see you at your trial ( or words to that effect) LOL

    One of her ex campaign staffers wrote a scathing piece about her dysfunctional campaign, how she had no plan, disorganized, etc.

    Why isn’t Cory Booker dropping out? He lost the support of his superpac.
