A staffer for Democratic Senator Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign has blasted her strategy and organization in a scathing resignation letter, calling out campaign leadership for abuse of staff and bungling the California Senator’s campaign.
Kelly Mehlenbacher, a state operations manager, resigned from the campaign earlier this month, and her letter blasting the campaign’s strategy surfaced on Friday.
Mehlenbacher said that she had “never seen an organisation treat its staff so poorly … I no longer have confidence in our campaign or its leadership. The treatment of our staff over the last two weeks was the final straw.”
The bulk of campaign staff had apparently been moved from Washington, D.C, to Baltimore, Maryland.
Disillusioned campaign workers such as Mehlenbacher have taken objection to senior leadership. Harris’ sister Maya has apparently exerted control over the candidate, and campaign manager Juan Rodriguez is also blasted in Mehlenbacher’s letter.
Once considered a frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, Harris’ campaign has floundered as she’s been surpassed by other Democrats such as Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg.
Harris also was devastated from an exchange with anti-war Democrat Tulsi Gabbard in July. Gabbard took Harris to task for her track record in imprisoning casual drug users as a California prosecutor. Campaign insiders have pointed to the moment as a point of failure for the candidate.
Harris has lacked an ability to articulate clear policies and chart a direction for her campaign. She’s been outpaced on health care policy by progressive Democrats such as Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and lacks a signature political issue to market herself to voters with.
The formerly vaunted California Senator will likely drop out within a matter of months, as fundraising dries up in the first quarter of the New Year. If anything, her departure from the race could swing a few meager percentage points of support to other Democrats such as Joe Biden.
Kanye West Announces Presidential Campaign; 2020 Spoiler?
A shock entry to the Presidential race.
Rap artist and businessman Kanye West announced that he would be running for President in a surprise Saturday tweet; surprising some political commentators on what would be a late entry to the 2020 election. However, the Montana resident and businessman declined to specifically confirm that he would be running in the 2020 election, which is merely four months away.
We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION
— ye (@kanyewest) July 5, 2020
West generally trends conservative and adopted pious Christian views several years ago; changing the subject matter of his music to better reflect biblical themes. He’s maintained a warm relationship with President Trump, speaking of his opposition to stifling political correctness in the entertainment industry; the rapper even stated that he planned to cast his first ever vote for President Trump in the 2020 election.
Should he run in this election, it seems more likely that West would be at least inclined to vote for himself.
However, West’s appeal to the black community could mean that he serves as a de facto spoiler taking away enough votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden to prevent the party elder figure from securing a November victory.
West was edited into the Wikipedia article for the pending 2020 presidential election hours within his tweet, being featured as a major party candidate in the election summary of the page.
Kanye West is yet to file a declaration of candidacy with the Federal Elections Committee, and it’s too late for him to get on the ballot on many major American states, raising questions about the timing or seriousness of his supposed 2020 campaign. However, the colorful musician could be referring to a 2024 campaign.
