  • La sénatrice Kamala Harris lors d'un débat démocrate à Atlanta le 20 novembre 2019

KAmala Harris, la sénatrice californienne, a abandonné la course pour remporter l'investiture démocrate à la présidence pour affronter Donald Trump aux élections de 2020. Après des débuts très remarqués, elle était retombée et stagnait dans les sondages derrière le peloton de tête. "Je ne peux pas financer ma propre campagne", a souligné la sénatrice. En dépit de performances honorables lors des débats d'octobre et de novembre, et de collectes de fonds convenables (11 millions de dollars au troisième trimestre), Kamala Harris obtenait moins de 4 % des intentions de vote selon la même source à la veille de son abandon. "Ma campagne pour être élue présidente ne dispose tout simplement pas des moyens dont nous avons besoin pour continuer ", a-t-elle écrit dans un communiqué rendu public. "Et alors que la campagne avance, il est devenu de plus en plus difficile de lever l'argent dont nous avons besoin pour nous battre". Elle n'est pas la première personnalité à se retirer pour des raisons financières.

Mme Harris a déjà été considérée comme l'une des favorites parmi les démocrates, mais sa campagne a été éclipsée par celles de rivaux tels qu'Elizabeth Warren et Pete Buttigieg.

Cependant, après une brève hausse du scrutin quand elle a défié Joe Biden, ancien vice-président et leader américain, à l'étape du débat, Mme Harris a chuté à un chiffre inférieur à 10% dans les sondages nationaux.

Atkinson III rushed for almost 1,000 yards and had 10 rushing touchdowns during his three seasons with the Fighting Irish. He was also institutionalized for self-harm. "That's the moment I can't describe", he wrote of losing his brother.

Alors qu'elle menait encore une intense campagne tout récemment dans l'Iowa, Kamala Harris a confié être parvenue à l'"une des décisions les plus dures" de sa vie "ces derniers jours".

Elle était venue vivre au Québec lorsque sa mère, Shyamala Gopalan, avait été embauchée à titre de professeure à l'Université McGill et de chercheuse à l'Hôpital général juif de Montréal. L'ancienne procureure de Californie renonce pour cette fois au bureau ovale, mais elle n'en a pas fini avec la politique.
