What Happened to Kamala's Campaign?
Aimee Allison , founder and president of She the People, a national network aimed at empowering women of color as voters and candidates, and Gabriel Debenedetti , National Correspondent for New York Magazine , discuss the unraveling of Kamala Harris' presidential campaign. Plus, your calls: if you were a Harris supporter, who are you supporting now?

I was also really moved and excited by Harris to Biden that night. But I was really disappointed over the next few days when it became obvious that she didn't have clear policy ideas about busing herself.
