Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) was once considered a top contender to be the Democratic presidential candidate in 2020, but those days are a fading memory, and her campaign is on its last legs.

Last week, CBS News reported that Harris fired over half of her New Hampshire campaign team, including all of her field organizers. Her three field offices are being closed as well, as a desperate cash-cutting measure from the fledgling campaign.

A campaign spokesman claims that “a handful of staffers will run a scaled-down campaign out of the Manchester headquarters” so the campaign will still have an extremely limited presence in the Granite State. They are hinging their campaign on Harris’ performance in the Iowa caucuses, which are scheduled to take place on Feb. 3.

“Senator Harris and this team set out with one goal – to win the nomination and defeat Donald Trump in 2020,” said Nate Evans, who works as the communications director for Harris’ New Hampshire campaign, in a statement.

“To do so, the campaign has made a strategic decision to realign resources and go all-in on Iowa, resulting in office closures and staff realignments and reductions in New Hampshire. The campaign will continue to have a staff presence in New Hampshire but the focus is and will continue to be on Iowa,” Evans added.

Harris, who is steadfastly dedicated to the goal of gaining political power, is scrambling to save her presidential ambitions. Her campaign’s lack of momentum and success have not caused her to give up, as she hopes for a miracle in Iowa.

“I’m practically living in Iowa to do the work that is necessary to make sure that I earn the support and have the folks in the caucuses who are standing in Kamala’s corner,” Harris told CBS News in an interview on Saturday, referring to herself in the third person.

“It was a very difficult decision,” Harris said of the decision to scale back in New Hampshire. “But let me tell you, I care about New Hampshire. We still have folks in New Hampshire. I have spent time in that state. I care about the people of that state. And we know that Iowa being the first state, you know, you got to be all in here in order to be able to get to the point that we can actually get to New Hampshire and other states later.”

Harris started her slide down the polls after her record was targeted by Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), the maverick anti-war presidential contender who has bucked her party’s establishment, during a contentious debate over the summer.
