Whenever a presidential campaign starts significantly cutting back on staffers and other costs, it’s never a good idea. As the 2020 presidential election goes on, various candidates have realized that running a campaign isn’t always easy.
While multiple Democrat candidates previously came out and announced the financial struggles with their campaigns, one candidate, in particular, is working her hardest to preserve resources for the Iowa caucus.
New developments from Fox News confirm that Kamala Harris is now letting go of campaign employees and making other moves to lessen financial expenses. These shifts come as Harris continues to lose momentum, seek attention from the president on Twitter, and fault racism and sexism for her political woes.
The Latest Reports on Harris’ 2020 Campaign
This week, Harris’ 2020 campaign manager Juan Rodriguez sent out an urgent campaign memo regarding necessary new updates. These updates admittedly entail “reducing expenditures” and “realigning resources.” As a result of these new developments, the number of staffers working for Harris will reduce by dozens; moreover, the staffers who remain on board with Harris’ campaign will see decreases in their wages.
In the campaign memo, Rodriguez made sure to point out that other “winning primary campaigns” of the past “made tough choices” in order to achieve success. What Harris’ campaign manager declined to mention is that Harris’ campaign has progressively worsened. As a matter of fact, the 2020 Democrat’s political ambitions are coming along so poorly that she has yet to run advertisements on television.
The reality is that no matter how Harris or her team tries to spin things, she’s spending more money than opponents who are crushing her in the polls.
What’s Next for Kamala Harris?
In the wake of reducing notable campaign overhead, Harris will be spending this weekend and the upcoming week in Iowa and New Hampshire. Like other 2020 Democrats, Harris remains eager to be in as best a position as possible for the Iowa caucus. Furthermore, she realizes that her momentary boost gained after the first primary debate has long evaporated and clearly isn’t returning.
In the wake of Harris’ moves to save what’s left of her campaign, competition is even more intense. Thus far, there are no reports of other 2020 Democrats making significant cuts to their amount of staffers in preparation for the Iowa caucus.
