Sen. Kamala Harris drops out of 2020 presidential race

Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris has dropped out of the presidential race.

After months of slumping poll numbers, Sen. Harris has suspended her presidential campaign. Sources from her campaign say the California Democrat informed her senior staff Tuesday of her decision.

Her decision to exit the race comes after months of trying to recreate the momentum from her January campaign launch, which drew 20,000 people in her home state of California.

Harris was once considered a front-runner in the crowded Democratic field but saw her campaign eclipsed by rivals such as Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg.

She had been heavily focusing on the state of Iowa.
