Kamala Harris announces 2020 presidential campaign

Senator Kamala Harris Officially Announces Her Candidacy for President

Popular data analysis website FiveThirtyEight wrote in response to her announcement that Harris "has the potential to be among the strongest contenders in the 2020 Democratic field".

"The future of our country depends on you and millions or others, lifting our voices to fight for our American values", she says.

Earlier this month, Harris, during an interview, had said that the United States is ready for a woman of colour to be president. During a recent appearance on The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert asked her if she was planning on running and she appeared to nod.

Unlike Warren, Gillibrand, or Castro, Harris is not initially forming a presidential exploratory committee, but instead immediately launching a full-scale presidential campaign. And you get cut.

When she was elected to the Senate six years later she was just the second black woman ever to serve in the chamber. In 2018, the senator visited Iowa and SC to stump for local candidates. SC will hold the first primary in 2020 dominated by African-American voters. She has also posted a campaign on Youtube.

She has pushed back against critics of "identity politics", who she says are using the term as a pejorative to marginalize issues of race, gender and sexual orientation.

Her first campaign stop will be on Friday in Columbia, South Carolina, a Harris aide said, while revealing some early hires Monday. "Our strength is that we fight to reach those ideals". Day that she's running for president in 2020 for two-thirds of what Superman once vowed to defend, as well as some other important things: "truth", "justice", "decency", "equality", "freedom", and "democracy".

In her two years in the Senate, she has brought a prosecutor's sharpness to the questioning of Donald Trump's nominees on the Senate Judiciary Committee, such as Brett Kavanaugh. In the book, she describes her upbringing in Oakland as a daughter of immigrants from India and Jamaica, and her personal history going from prosecutor to district attorney to senator. "It makes me nervous". But some felt she did not do enough to support progressive ballot propositions revising California's three-strikes law, for example, when she became attorney general.

Former Maryland Rep. John Delaney, is seeking the Democratic Party's nomination for president.

The report adds that the holy basin will be "jointly run" by the Palestinians, Jordanians, and potentially other countries. Plastic toys are displayed for sale outside a shop in Ramallah, in the occupied West Bank November 18, 2018.

As a child, Harris attended a Hindu temple and a black Baptist church. They divorced when Harris was young, and her mother raised her and her younger sister, Maya.

"I'm a career prosecutor".

The former California attorney general was elected to the Senate in 2016.

That has been a constant theme of her appearances over the past year on her book tour, and in early-voting states like Iowa and SC, where she will campaign on Friday.

The announcement falls on the U.S. Martin Luther King Jr.

Political foes will pore over Harris' record in California, where some activists questioned whether she should have been more aggressive in pushing for changes to the criminal justice system. Her home state of California also has moved up its primary to increase its influence. And he highlighted how he apologized to the fiancee of Sean Bell, a black man who was shot to death by NY police in 2006, just hours before the man's wedding.

Harris will hold a formal campaign launch in Oakland next week.

Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, who unsuccessfully sought the 2016 Democratic nomination, is considering a campaign. Lily Adams, a Clinton campaign alum who has worked as Harris's spokeswoman, will be communications director.
