Senator Kamala Harris has officially dropped out of the 2020 Presidential race. The announcement was made on Tuesday during a phone call she had with her campaign staff.
Harris’ 2020 campaign was a total disaster from the start considering her own staff couldn’t even rally behind her as they often complained about the lack of leadership.
One of the recent hints that Harris’ presidential campaign would be coming to an end came late last week when Harris aid Kelly Mehlenbacher wrote a scathing letter, hammering Harris and her presidential campaign for their lack of leadership and poor treatment.
“This is my third presidential campaign and I have never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly,” wrote Mehlenbacher said in her letter. “While I still believe that Senator Harris is the strongest candidate to win in the General Election in 2020, I no longer have confidence in our campaign or its leadership.”
“It is not acceptable to me that we encouraged people to move from Washington, DC to Baltimore only to lay them off with no notice, with no plan for the campaign, and without thoughtful consideration of the personal consequences to them or the consequences that their absence would have on the remaining staff,” continued Mehlenbacher. “It is unacceptable that we would lay off anyone that we hired only weeks earlier. It is unacceptable that with less than 90 days until lowa we still do not have a real plan to win.”
“Campaigns have highs and lows, mistakes and miscalculations, lessons learned and adjustments made. But because we have refused to confront our mistakes, foster an environment of critical thinking and honest feedback, or trust the expertise of talented staff, we find ourselves making the same unforced errors over and over. And, it certainly does not help the team to read about campaign discord in Politico (or various other publications) because those with things to say have decided the best way to air their grievances is in the press instead of to leadership.”
