Kamala Harris’ campaign was just hit with a bombshell that is going to be awfully hard to recover from.
Kelly Mehlenbacher, a campaign veteran, has resigned.
That, however, is not the story; the story is why she resigned.
In the short time that Harris has been on the national stage, she has come off as a bit of a, well, bitch.
She is arrogant, short-tempered, and seems to hold everyone but herself accountable for her own failures.
That assessment was more or less backed up by Mehlenbacher’s resignation announcement.
She stated, “This is my third presidential campaign and I have never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly.
“While I still believe that Senator Harris is the strongest candidate to win in the General Election in 2020, I no longer have confidence in our campaign or its leadership.
“It is not acceptable to me that we encouraged people to move from Washington, DC to Baltimore only to lay them off with no notice, with no plan for the campaign, and without thoughtful consideration of the personal consequences to them or the consequences that their absence would have on the remaining staff.”
Mehlenbacher is now reportedly working for the Michael Bloomberg campaign.
Harris’ campaign did not directly address the problems mentioned by Mehlenbacher, but the campaign did issue a statement after the resignation was made public.
Juan Rodriguez, Harris’ campaign manager, stated, “Our team, from the candidate to organizers across the country, are working day in and out to make sure Kamala is the nominee to take on Donald Trump and end the national nightmare that is his presidency.
“Just like every campaign, we have made tough decisions to have the resources we need to place in Iowa and springboard into the rest of the primary calendar.”
Harris’ campaign was already in trouble before this resignation, and this is only going to make matters worse for her.
Despite spending all of her time in New Hampshire and Iowa, more recently only Iowa, Harris has been unable to break through as a top contender.
In the most recent polls, she was not even above five percent in support.
Of course, Harris has blamed this on the fact she is a black woman, claiming America is not ready for a woman of color to be president.
Perhaps she needs to take a harder look insider her own campaign to see what America is seeing, then she will realize that finger ONLY deserves to be pointed directly at the candidate for the Harris campaign failures and nowhere else.
