Democrat Kamala Harris has announced she is dropping out of the presidential race. In recent weeks, Harris’s poll numbers fell to 2%, lower than Pete Buttigieg, who was recently caught faking support among black Americans, and tied with also-rans Amy Klobuchar and Julian Castro.
Harris reportedly told her aides that she planned to quit the race by a conference call. Harris’s aides have spoken out about her poor treatment of her staff and no “real plan to win.”
Kelly Mehlenbacher, the Harris campaign’s state operations director, resigned in November, saying “This is my third presidential campaign and I have never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly.”
Mehlenbacher accused the Harris campaign of encouraging staffers to move across states, and then subsequently fire them without notice. Mehlenbacher has now joined the campaign of Democrat Michael Bloomberg.
While Harris had qualified for the upcoming December Democrat debate, Politico has reported she was “running dangerously low on cash — lacking the resources to air TV ads in Iowa — and her staff was gripped by long-running internal turmoil.”
In an earlier report today, Politico also reported that a pro-Harris PAC had booked $300,000 worth of advertising in Iowa.
Harris only had a few days to get out of the presidential primary before her name would appear on the California ballot, which gets mailed to voters in early February. According to several political observers, a defeat in California would have been devastating for Harris and set her up for a challenge in 2022 for her reelection to the Senate.
Harris’s poll numbers took a swift dive after she and her campaign spent weeks sparring with prominent conservative Ali Alexander over her true heritage.
Alexander exposed Harris’s false claims to African-American heritage. Harris was born to a mother from India and a father from Jamaica whose family owned slaves. Alexander went viral with a tweet during the second presidential debate, garnering an estimated $10 million in “earned media” after being retweeted by Donald Trump, Jr. and attacked on CBS, CNN, and other corporate news networks.
Alexander also spoke out against Harris’s press secretary Ian Sams, who smeared Alexander as a “troll” and claimed he was promulgating “racist attacks” against Harris. Alexander is a black American.
Alexander’s discourse on why Harris is “not American black” has been seen by over 175,000 viewers.
Democrat Tulsi Gabbard has also been credited with success in taking down the Harris campaign. Gabbard famously confronted Harris during a debate with her history as a predatory prosecutor.
During the second Democratic primary debate, Gabbard called Harris out for her hypocritical stance on marijuana, stating Harris “put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations,” and “laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana.”
Gabbard was referring to comments Harris made in February during an interview with The Breakfast Club on the popular New York radio station Power 105.1, where she admitted to smoking marijuana.
When radio host Charlamagne asked if Harris had ever smoked marijuana she replied, “I have, and I inhaled. It was a long time ago.”
Harris also claimed she liked to listen to Snoop Dogg and Tupac when she got high in college, but that’s impossible considering neither artist had produced any music when she attended college in the late 80s.
