2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Kamala Harris admitted the early days of her nationwide campaign weren’t going well Friday; sending an email to supporters that said “we are at a real risk of falling short” on their fundraising goals.
“I need to be direct: right now, we are at a real risk of falling short of our February fundraising goals. I hope you will give me a moment to explain what these monthly fundraising goals mean — and why your support matters so much,” said an email message from Harris to her supporters.
“This is how we are going to win: putting the power in the hands of the people who are powering our campaign. People just like you,” she added.
“This is exactly why we cannot afford to fall short of our monthly fundraising goals. I wouldn’t ask if it didn’t mean so much: can you help us get back on track for February with a donation of $10 or more today?” she concluded.

KAMALACARE? Sen. Harris Calls for ‘Elimination’ of Private Health Insurance Across US
California Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris stunned audience members at a CNN town hall event Monday evening; bizarrely suggesting the US medical system would be better off without private health insurance companies.
Harris was speaking alongside CNN’s Jake Tapper when she was asked if she would support a ‘Medicare for All’ system throughout the United States.

“Well, listen, the idea is that everyone gets access to medical care. And you don’t have to go through the process of going through an insurance company, having them give you approval, going through the paperwork, all of the delay that may require,” Harris told Tapper.
“Let’s eliminate all of that. Let’s move on,” she added.
DEMS IMPLODING: Bloomberg Compares Warren’s Policies to VENEZUELA, Says Harris Would 'Bankrupt Us'
Former New York City Mayor and likely 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg unloaded on members of his own party this week; equating Sen. Warren’s tax plan with Venezuela and saying the US can’t “afford” Sen. Harris’ healthcare proposal.
“If you want to look at a system that’s non-capitalistic, just take a look at what was perhaps the wealthiest country in the world, and today, people are starving to death — it’s called Venezuela,” said Bloomberg -referencing Warren’s proposed tax hikes.

“I think you could never afford that. I think you can have Medicare for all for people that are uncovered… to replace the entire private system where companies provide health care for their employees would bankrupt us for a very long time,” he added.
