“Though the Harris campaign’s stumbles wore on her ability to raise money — she was on track to bring in only $4 million during the last three months of the year, POLITICO reported — the network of established fundraisers she built during her presidential bid was one of the largest in the race.
Harris nabbed the second-most contributions from former bundlers for Obama and Clinton this cycle, surpassed only by Biden, the former vice president. Of the 401 former bundlers who have given money to a candidate by the end of September, 86 — or almost one in four — had supported Harris, according to a POLITICO analysis.
But Harris’ donors won’t be easy to win over, cautioned California-based political strategist Garry South.
‘The donor base is highly discriminating,’ South said. ‘I don’t think that, with Harris’ withdrawal, donors who gave to her are going to flock en masse to some other candidate. They’re going to step back, see who’s running a good campaign and see where they might move.’”
