Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. Today, a generous supporter will TRIPLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go three times as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Kamala Harris Ends Her 2020 Presidential Campaign

HeadlineDec 04, 2019

California Senator Kamala Harris says she’s ending her 2020 presidential campaign. Harris began the race as one of the front-running candidates, but she now says she doesn’t have enough money to continue her run. There has been a significant racial wealth gap among the 2020 presidential candidates. In November, the leading four white candidates — Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg and Joe Biden — had nearly four times as much cash on hand as the race’s five candidates of color — Kamala Harris, Andrew Yang, Cory Booker, Tulsi Gabbard and Julián Castro. This is Julián Castro responding to news about Kamala Harris’s departure from the race.

Julián Castro: “What we have, what we’re staring at, is a DNC debate stage, in a few days, with no people of color on it. That does not reflect the diversity of our party or our country. And we need to do better than that.”

After Kamala Harris announced her departure from the race, Trump sarcastically tweeted at Harris, writing, “Too bad. We will miss you Kamala!” In response, Harris, California’s former top prosecutor, responded, “Don’t worry, Mr. President. I’ll see you at your trial.”
