Democrat Presidential candidate Kamala Harris announced that she will be ending her campaign for the Democrat nomination.
In an op-ed in Medium, Harris blamed the failure of her campaign on “billionaires” who were self-funding, something she is unable to do.
“My campaign for president simply doesn’t have the financial resources we need to continue. I’m not a billionaire. I can’t fund my own campaign. And as the campaign has gone on, it’s become harder and harder to raise the money we need to compete.”
However, Kamala Harris does not mention the fact that many of the frontrunners, such a Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Bernie Sanders, both have a lower net worth than Harris’s $6million, according to a report from Forbes magazine.
Sen. Harris had a strong start at the beginning of the race, with many referring to her as a frontrunner. She actually lived up to that reputation for a few weeks following the first Democrat debate when she attacked former Vice President Joe Biden as a racist for policies he promoted as a Senator.

According to reports, Harris did not attempt to reduce the number of African American incarcerations and even actively held some black inmates past their release date to pad her own numbers and look hard on crime.
Following this attack, Kamala Harris quickly lost support and funding and began to run up large bills. At the same time, candidates like Buttigieg, Warren, Sanders, and Biden dominated the polls as well as funding, leaving little left for Harris’s campaign.
The straw that broke the camel’s back, however, came when several of Harris’s top campaign people left her campaign to sign on with Michael Bloomberg‘s recently announced campaign. They also did interviews and op-eds criticizing the Harris campaign for having no real plan to win.
Bloomberg appeared ahead of Harris in new polls released on Tuesday, right before she suspended her campaign.
