Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is dropping out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, she announced Tuesday.

In an email to supporters, Harris said she was having trouble funding her campaign. She recently canceled a New York fundraising event, hinting at troubles as she slid in national polls.
