While Harris entered the crowded 2020 field earlier this year as a perceived front-runner with a strong donor base in California, she told supporters Tuesday she did not have the funds to continue running her campaign. 

“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. My campaign for president simply doesn’t have the financial resources we need to continue,” Harris said. “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.”
