When Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) announced on Tuesday that she was folding up her 2020 presidential campaign, it didn't come as a surprise. After all, her team recently suffered layoffs, massive debts and one of her lead staffers' resignation letter detailed the issues of her campaign.
Naturally, everyone on the Left assumed that Harris's failure had to do with her race or her gender. It couldn't possibly be the fact that once you dive deeper into her "progressive prosecutor" image, she's really anything but. She checks off the typical leftist boxes. She's a woman. Check. She's an African American. Check. If you don't like her policies, you're not only racist, but you're also sexist. See how that works?
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), however, has a different take on the situation. In her eyes, both Harris and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) dropped out of the 2020 race because billionaires Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg jumped into the campaign.
