Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s presidential campaign has taken another hit as one of Biden’s top fundraisers has announced that he can no longer support Biden.
“Tom McInerney, a veteran San Francisco based lawyer, informed Biden’s team on June 20 that he can no longer help him raise campaign cash to compete in the 2020 presidential election,” CNBC reported. “While McInerney is the first financier to publicly withdraw his support after Biden’s controversial round of comments, the loss is significant because it could be a harbinger of further defections.”
McInerney pulled his support from Biden after Biden’s past comments praising racist Democrat segregationist senators surfaced earlier this month and after Biden flipped on repealing the Hyde Amendment.
“I don’t think he did well last night,” McInerney said of Biden’s debate performance.
Biden suffered a massive blow during Thursday night’s Democratic presidential debate of MSNBC from Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who ripped Biden to pieces over race.
“Growing up, my sister and I had to deal with the neighbor who told us her parents couldn’t play with us because we were black,” Harris said. “And I will say also that, in this campaign, we have also heard — and I’m going to now direct this at Vice President Biden — I do not believe you are a racist, and I agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground. But I also believe — and it’s personal — it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country. And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose bussing.”
“And, you know, there was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bussed to school every day,” Harris continued. “And that little girl was me. So I will tell you that, on this subject, it cannot be an intellectual debate among Democrats. We have to take it seriously. We have to act swiftly. As attorney general of California, I was very proud to put in place a requirement that all my special agents would wear body cameras and keep those cameras on.”
