Kamala Harris: Democrat ends bid for US presidency
Democratic White House hopeful Kamala Harris is dropping out of the presidential race.
The California senator’s campaign seemed full of promise when it launched in January, but she struggled to make headway in a crowded field.

He said: “My reaction is she is a first-rate intellect, a first-rate candidate.”
He added: “I have mixed emotions about it because she is really a solid, solid person, and loaded with talent.
“I’m sure she’s not dropping out on wanting to make the changes she cares about.”
Other candidates were also quick to pay tribute.
But polling showed her in the single digits in national surveys as well as those conducted in early-voting states.
After initially raising $12m in the first three months of her campaign, she failed to harness momentum.
