Tis the season for the wannabe Dem candidates start dropping like flies…..just Monday we lost 2 candidate Bullock and Sestak…..and yesterday one of the “major” candidates heads for the door….Kamala Harris.
On Tuesday, a much bigger name did the same. Kamala Harris has ended her bid for the presidency, in what the New York Times calls a “dramatic comedown” for a candidate who showed “significant promise” out of the gate. In a fairly lengthy statement posted to Medium, Harris framed it as “one of the hardest decisions of my life,” and one made “with deep regret—but also with deep gratitude.” It came down to money, she wrote. “I’m not a billionaire. I can’t fund my own campaign. And as the campaign has gone on, it’s become harder and harder to raise the money we need to compete. In good faith, I can’t tell you … that I have a path forward if I don’t believe I do.”
Indeed, the Times notes that in Q3 Harris’ campaign spent $1.41 for every dollar raised. She continued, “But I want to be clear with you: I am still very much in this fight. And I will keep fighting every day for what this campaign has been about. Justice for The People. All the people. … And I want to be clear: although I am no longer running for President, I will do everything in my power to defeat Donald Trump and fight for the future of our country and the best of who we are.”
The MSM spent 15+ minutes on why she is out….they ignored everyone else that left…..but a good corporate candidate needs explaining…..and it continues unabated…there are a dozen plus candidates that are still in the race and it would be good to see the media actually care about that instead of making excuses for a loser. Her decision was to avoid being labelled a loser after the primaries and causes begin in earnest….her eyes are on the future and not the present.
That is 3 wannabes this week…not bad…we need to lose a few more to make it a better race.
I say good riddance…my candidate is still in there slugging (for now)…..my advice to the MSM…stop whining over Harris departure…..there is more at stake than some feel good bullshit from the media.
As the tradition of IST we will show Harris the exit door to the sounds of Queen…..
The candidate size is getting more manageable…..
I keep track of all this so my readers can just sit back and enjoy whatever Reality TV show they had rather watch…..
