WASHINGTON (Gray DC)-- Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) announced Tuesday to staff that she would suspend her bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

The California Senator cancelled a New York City fundraiser earlier Tuesday that was expected to draw wealthy donors to the campaign. The explanation given at the time was a "personal matter."
Harris' campaign had struggled in the past few weeks as she attempted to shift more attention to the Iowa caucuses. She closed her New Hampshire offices and downsized her Baltimore headquarters in the fall. Last week, a top Harris aide also jumped ship to join the Bloomberg campaign.
The senator will return to Washington, D.C just in time for a potential trial on impeachment.
