Kamala Harris just announced the end of her campaign to be the Democratic candidate for president in 2020.
She attributed the need to drop out to lack of funds. After surging strongly after she attacked Joe Biden on the issue of school busing with the famous line, “that girl was me,” she started to slump.
Some speculate that her funding has dropped because candidate Tulsi Gabbard took her down in an earlier debate. SNL took a few shots at her, too.
“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,” the senator from California told supporters in an email.
“My campaign for president simply doesn’t have the financial resources we need to continue.”
It has been the honor of my life to be your candidate. We will keep up the fight. pic.twitter.com/RpZhx3PENl

Many attribute Harris’s decline to Tulsi Gabbard and her take-down of Harris at an earlier debate.
Saturday Night Live made fun of Harris in two skits about the Democratic Debates. Perhaps these all-in-good fun skits took their toll on Harris’s campaign?
