Kamala Harris is ending her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020. And I will keep fighting every day for what this campaign has been about. Stay tuned for more details.

The California Senator made the announcement to her staff Tuesday and plans to release a video statement soon. Justice for The People.

"I'm moving to Iowa", the senator joked at rallies, as she vowed to campaign in the state each week. "And as the campaign has gone on, it's become harder and harder to raise the money we need to compete".

The final indicator of Harris' struggling campaign came when CNBC reported that the senator was supposed to have a fundraiser in NY on Tuesday, but it was cancelled just hours in advance.

Harris, 55, entered the race a rising star.

To qualify for Blue America's next oratorical smackdown in Los Angeles, candidates had to either hit 4 percent in four national polls approved by the DNC, or 6 percent in two early primary-state polls, while also securing campaign contributions from at least 200,000 donors.

The high point of Harris' campaign came during the first Democratic debate in June, when she confronted former Vice President Joe Biden on his past opposition to busing as a way to desegregate schools.

Despite beginning the race as a serious contender for the Oval Office - she regularly polled as a top-tier candidate - her campaign has struggled to maintain its momentum, plummeting in the polls amid reports of turmoil among campaign staff and the lack of a clear strategy. The moment went viral, catapulting her in the polls and exposing a weakness in the vice president.
