While Clinton's tweet did not specifically mention Harris, her words came less than an hour after the California senator announced early Tuesday afternoon that she was suspending her 2020 campaign, bringing to a close a rough stretch of several months that saw her poll numbers falling and her fundraising totals drying up.

“I’ve taken stock and looked at this from every angle, and over the last few days have come to one of the hardest decisions of my life,” Harris wrote in an email to supporters. “My campaign for president simply doesn’t have the financial resources we need to continue.”

Early on in the race Harris was seen as a front-runner among a crowded field of Democrats, but she struggled to convert the early enthusiasm into a sustained movement.
