NBC NEWS - Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., dropped out of the presidential race on Tuesday, ending a 12-month campaign. 

An aide told NBC News that that the senator had notified her staff Tuesday that she was dropping out of the race and the campaign emailed the news to supporters soon after.

 

"I'm not a billionaire. I can't fund my own campaign," Harris said in the email. "And as the campaign has gone on, it's become harder and harder to raise the money we need to compete. In good faith, I can't tell you, my supporters and volunteers, that I have a path forward if I don't believe I do."

Her exit out comes just weeks before the deadline to get off the ballot in Harris' home state of California.

This is a developing story.
