Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) no longer has her sights set on a 2020 presidential win. The former California Attorney General pulled out of her campaign entirely and is set to make a public announcement soon.
Harris told her staff on a Tuesday phone call, according to Politico.
My dear friend @KamalaHarris is a trailblazer. I’ve loved serving with her in the Senate and every moment we’ve run into one another on the trail. Her campaign broke barriers and did it with joy. Love you, sister. pic.twitter.com/HzLXw88NrM

Kamala is a good friend and incredibly strong public servant. Sometimes campaigns can tear friendships apart but we have grown closer. Her good work will continue.

This story is developing. She will make a recorded announcement later this afternoon as to her reasoning for leaving the race.
In August, during the Democratic debate, Harris saw her numbers among black voters drop when Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) went after her prosecution record.
