U.S. Senator Kamala Harris Is Ending Her Presidential Bid

First-term U.S. Senator Kamala Harris of California is ending her presidential bid.

Harris is a rising Democratic Party star and outspoken critic of Republican President Donald Trump.

Harris has made the decision to step out of the race after failing to garner support in key states.

A campaign official said she will make her withdrawal official on Tuesday.

The 55-year-old positioned herself as a unifying candidate who could energize the partyโ€™s base.

After climbing into double digits in opinion polls, Harris slid out of the top tier in recent months.

The senator from Californiaโ€™s departure from the race is the first of a top-tier candidate from the crowded nominating contest.
