Kamala Harris to drop out of the 2020 presidential race

Sen. Kamala Harris ended her 2020 presidential campaign on Tuesday.

The California Democrat told her senior staff of the decision Tuesday morning, and later sent an email to supporters.

"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," Harris wrote in the email.

The senator, who struggled to energize her campaign in recent months, acknowledged that financial pressures led to her decision.
