Real Explanation For Kamala Harris’s Decision to Quit the 2020 Race, in One Cartoon

December 4, 2019   |   by James G. Dalton

By now most readers know that former top-tier candidate and California Senator Kamala Harris dropped out of the 2020 race for the Democratic Party nomination for President today.

She blamed a lack of money needed to continue. While this is likely true, what’s the real explanation for her lack of funding?

Here in one one cartoon is what we believe to be the answer:

So there you have it.

The real reason she had to quit is her support was extremely slim.

She had a real chance to win the nomination but blew it by hiding from her own record, because of her record, her inability to articulate coherent policy positions and her poor performances in the televised debates.

Here’s the background story, for those that missed it earlier:

First-term U.S. Senator Kamala Harris of California on Tuesday will end her 2020 presidential campaign after failing to garner support in key states despite an early rise in the polls, according to a campaign source.

“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 said in an email to supporters on Tuesday. “My campaign for president simply doesn’t have the financial resources we need to continue.”

Harris held a conference call with staff on Tuesday afternoon to inform them of her decision, according to sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Harris, 55, positioned herself as a unifying candidate who could energize the party’s base of young, diverse progressives while also appealing to more moderate voters.

Yet after climbing into double digits in opinion polls following a strong debate performance in June, Harris slid out of the top tier in recent months and lags behind leading candidates’ fundraising hauls.

The senator from California’s departure from the race is the first of a top-tier candidate from the crowded nominating contest.

Harris entered the race as an immediate front-runner but then struggled to maintain support, which critics said was fueled by her inability to articulate policy positions and the backlash of an attempt to attack rival former Vice President Joe Biden.

    She was not a unifying candidate at all. She was a bitch.

      She put many in jail for marjana and then bragged about smoking it herself! Witchful thinking!

      So does she have to give all the donor money back to the donors?

      I mean it might be enough to pay for taxis for a while but it doesn’t mean she shouldn’t have to pay her friends back.

      It’s the right thing to do.

    Does that mean she will be spending more time in California? Maybe, just maybe, when Gavin Newson, the Governor, was preparing to campaign for her, she knew she was doomed but she’s just a gal that can’t say, “No”. The citizens in California have a petition to recall him and most of the State is signing it. Have you noticed, no one seems to know that Newson is Nancy Pelosi’s nephew? So what else, would you expect but the same old corruption that California has had with the liberal dumbocrats for so many years? California used to be a great place to live and to visit. Not any more. Democrats’ policies have destroyed a great State. You would have to be a moron to ever vote for a democrat again.

      I am very happy to read that most of my state is signing the recall. The Democrat party influence in California has got to be stopped.

        One way only, deport illegals, the Queers, and all other special interest groups .
        That will leave only patriotic Americans. Now we have a State to be proud of

    Kameltoe Harass had a cloud of Prosecutorial Misconduct hanging over her head. Her unity🐎💩 was not shown in her large numbers of black and brown citizens imprisoned. Her support for illegal aliens did not play well with working America nor legal immigrants.

    Glad to hear of another De Mo Rat crashed and burned don’t we wish they all would do the same?
    I do not believe a person who claims they are Christian could ever vote De Mo Rat. Because they stand for and support laaate term Abortion, legalize drug use, breaking of immigration laws with cities of protection criminals. San Francisco, CA Baltimore, MD, New York City, all De Mo Rats strong holds are all stinking toilets, burned out or boarded up housing, the homeless craping and peeing on the streets, these cities are swamps.

    So if you read this and are not brain impaired thinks of what De Mo Rats offer, and offer, and offer over and over again without any great help or any thought of your needs.
