California senator, Kamala Harris, is concluding her campaign for 2020 president. This news quickly spread throughout the country, gaining over 125,000 likes and 23,000 retweets on Twitter.

She suspended her campaign in spite of qualifying for the next presidential debate, held on Dec 19, Harris announced her leave due to a struggle in increasing her poll numbers, being financially restricted and disturbance within her campaign team, according to businessinsider.com.

“I was very surprised by it,” Democratic insider and the daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Christine Pelosi said. “It was rather shocking when I got a text from someone- I thought, that can’t be.”

Harris was also facing deadlines in her home state of Iowa, where the ballot will be finalized by the end of this year. A poor performance in her home state could have lead to issues with her 2020 race, as well as being Senator.

“This way she doesn’t risk a drubbing in California that could lead to some ambitious Democrat primarying her for the Senate seat,” Democratic congressional strategist Ian Russell said.

While Harris is no longer running for president, she says she will still fight for the people and what they deserve.

“I want to be clear,” Harris said. “Although I am no longer running for president, I will do everything in my power to defeat Donald Trump and fight for the future of our country and the best of who we are. I know you will too. So let’s do that together.”
