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

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.

Harris plans to travel to New York, Baltimore, and “the four early states where she has a campaign presence” to inform her team, reports HuffPost. She had a difficult time overcoming the traditional stances she took as a prosecutor in California, even though she positioned herself as a progressive senator and presidential candidate.
