While frontrunner Joe Biden drives on with his "No Malarkey" bus tour of Iowa, Senator Kamala Harris has driven her "No Mullah" campaign bus into the exit lane of the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination race.
"Of course I would", Biden said. Look, I started working with Kamala Harris during the housing crisis when she was attorney general of California and I was setting up the consumer agency. I mean it sincerely. I talked to her yesterday. Reacting to her abrupt withdrawal, President Trump, now in the United Kingdom to attend the NATO Summit, tweeted, "Too bad".
Biden also said he spoke to Harris on Tuesday.
Harris, a former attorney general of California, knew Biden's late son, Beau Biden, who served as attorney general of Delaware.
"In good faith, I can't tell you, my supporters and volunteers, that I have a path forward if I don't believe I do", continued Harris, who was elected to the US Senate in 2016. While the viral moment helped Harris in the immediate post-debate polls, she later dropped significantly.
She described, in a statement, her decision to quit the race as "one of the hardest decisions of my life", adding that her campaign "simply doesn't have the financial resources we need to continue". Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) speak after the Democratic Presidential Debate at Texas Southern University's Health and PE Center in Houston, Texas on September 12, 2019. "I have mixed emotions about it because she is really a solid, solid person, and loaded with talent".
"If you're saying, 'oh, it seems to me that there's bias at play, ' wouldn't you think, 'Oh, there's a tremendous well of support coming from blacks, Latinos, women?'" Williams asked on "The Story with Martha MacCallum".
