Kamala Harris’ opponents applauded her as a “trailblazer” and a “lifelong fighter for opportunity and justice” following the California senator’s announcement that she would not continue with her presidential campaign.
My dear friend @KamalaHarris is a trailblazer. I’ve loved serving with her in the Senate and every moment we’ve run into one another on the trail. Her campaign broke barriers and did it with joy. Love you, sister. pic.twitter.com/HzLXw88NrM
I’m so thankful for @KamalaHarris’s friendship and candidacy in this race.
As a child of immigrants, she’s been a lifelong fighter for opportunity and justice for all Americans, and I’m glad she’ll keep fighting for an America where everyone counts. pic.twitter.com/09XFGYG7BD
Kamala is a good friend and incredibly strong public servant. Sometimes campaigns can tear friendships apart but we have grown closer. Her good work will continue.
With Kamala Harris’ withdrawal from the Democratic presidential race, six candidates are now expected to participate in the December debate — although there are nine days left to qualify.
As one commentator pointed out, without Harris on the stage, all the candidates who have already qualified — Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar — are white.
Kamala Harris officially ended her campaign today, which means that all of the candidates who currently qualify for the December Democratic debate are white (Sanders, Warren, Biden, Buttigieg, Klobuchar, and Steyer).
White supremacy is not just a Fox News problem, folks.
