As the Democrat primary has consolidated to four main candidates (Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders), the remaining bajillion candidates are dropping like flies.

It was reported just days ago that the Kamala Harris campaign is in disarray, with one top aide leaving the campaign claiming to have “never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly.” That aide left for Michael Bloomberg’s campaign, which some observed would be like leaving the Titanic for the Hindenburg. Just an hour ago she cancelled a big-money fundraiser in New York, and now we know why.

According to AXOIS:

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is dropping out of the 2020 presidential race, her campaign confirmed to Axios on Tuesday.

Harris spent the early parts of her campaign as a top-tier contender for the Democratic nomination, but struggled in the polls as Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg emerged as frontrunners. She landed a few standout moments — most notably in the first debate, when she faced off with Biden over his opposition of federally mandated busing in the 1970s.

  • But while Harris’ poll numbers saw a spike after the first debate, the moment failed to significantly alter the course of her campaign.
  • The senator laid off the majority of her New Hampshire staff in early November, hoping to go all-in on Iowa with limited cash on hand.
  • Last week, more than 50 current and former staffers spoke to the New York Times about dysfunction within the campaign. Many of them spoke on the record.

The pivotal shift in the polls occurred when Tulsi Gabbard tore into her over her record as a prosecutor, one which her campaign never recovered from.
