Senator Kamala Harris's campaign fires dozens of staff as they breathe new life into her presidential bid, struggling in the polls and struggling with money issues while moving all-in in Iowa.

The California senator, who had an outbreak in the first presidential debate and hoped to take advantage of an advantage in the Golden State, now notices that she is sharing her team and is trying to reconfigure a smaller effort focused on the first caucus state.

& # 39; From the start of this campaign, Kamala Harris and this team have set themselves with one goal: to win the nomination and beat Donald Trump in 2020 This requires that we make difficult strategic decisions and set clear priorities, not threaten to drop out or deploy gimmicks, & # 39; wrote her campaign leader, Juan Rodriguez, in a memo explaining the changes, Politics reported.

He noticed the & # 39; incredibly competitive resource environment & # 39; on what she stands for.

He may refer to gambling games from rival senator Cory Booker and former housing minister Joaqin Castro, who said they would stop if they could not achieve an online fundraising goal.

Harris is only 3 percent in the Real Clear Politics poll average, which, as the Republican National Committee notes in an email with the bad news, aligns it with Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.

Harris has tried to use her background as a prosecutor as a calling card to attack Trump during the charge of the charges. She told & # 39; Late Show & # 39; host Seth Meyer Monday evening: & # 39; & # 39; We have a clear picture of guilt awareness … We have a cover, that's that. And we have a confession. And as a former public prosecutor I know a confession when I see it … And frankly, someone has to tell Donald Trump that he has the right to remain silent, & she said.

She might get a free platform this fall as the Senate records articles about House allegations for President Trump.

But she was not a central figure during the last presidential debate in Ohio, and her outbreak, when she attacked former vice president Joe Biden about school buses, came back in June.

Rodriguez resorted to quoting two candidates who won their party's primaries – but lost the general election.

& # 39; Many winning primary campaigns, such as those of John Kerry in 2004 and those of John McCain in 2008, have had to make difficult choices on their way to nomination, and this is no different, ”he wrote.

At the end of the last quarter for fundraising, Harris raised $ 12 million, but spent nearly $ 15 million, leaving her campaign further in the hole. She pulled in the same amount in the previous quarter. According to her campaign, she raised $ 35 million from more than 350,000 donors.

In a Suffolk University / USA Today poll released Wednesday, Harris was 3 percent behind Biden, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Bernie Sanders, and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who beat her 6 percent. She also followed Buttigieg in a Hill / Harris survey.
