She got what she deserved…
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has been forced to lay off dozens of campaign staffers at her Baltimore headquarters as her flailing bid for the White House continues to suffer from poor polling figures and money woes.
Politico writes that in addition to the layoffs in Baltimore, Harris’s campaign is also slashing or re-deploying staff at her offices in key primary states such as Iowa, New Hampshire, and California. Further, the Harris campaign is cutting salaries of top officials, including campaign manager Juan Rodriguez, who was earning $10,000 per month.
“It’s an unsustainable path,” Ami Copeland, who served as deputy national finance director for Barack Obama’s campaign, stated.
“If that’s the best you’ll squeeze out bringing all of the assets to bear, it’s looking very dire,” Copeland said of Harris’ third-quarter figures.
One unnamed Democrat donor, who gave the maximum amount to Harris’ campaign, expressed frustration with her lack of fundraising prowess.
“She’s from fucking California. The idea that you don’t have support of high-dollar donors doesn’t make any sense,” the donor stated. “I blame her.”
