United States Senator Kamala Harris, a former California attorney general, announced Monday she's joining the Democratic presidential race - nearly 40 years after she graduated from Westmount High School.

Harris, California's former attorney general who won a seat to replace longtime Democratic Sen.

Kamala Harris formally jumped in the race Monday for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president of the United States.

Vowing to "bring our voices together", Harris would be the first woman to hold the presidency if she succeeds.

Born to an Indian mother and Jamaican father in Oakland, Harris "had a stroller-eye view of the Civil Rights movement", according to her official Senate bio. "There's no one who could say, 'I know exactly how to do it because I've done it before, ' because we have never seen this before with a very crowded field", Democratic political strategist Andrew Acosta said. "Let's claim our future, for ourselves, for our children and for our country", she said. Her team clearly sees her strongest potential for an early state victory in SC, where African-Americans made up 61 percent of the Democratic primary electorate in 2016.

Smith says he can see the influence the city had on Harris through her politics.

Harris has done little to hide her presidential ambitions.

Harris is being instantly hailed as a top-tier candidate. Former federal prosecutors like Preet Bharara have become cable-news anti-Trump heroes for their on-air speculation about the Trump-Russia investigation.

You have to do that to win games sometimes". "We'll be OK to be able to rotate and there's enough games and playing time ". Solskjaer said via Manchester United's Official Website : "Of course, the attitude is brilliant".

The others being Senator Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand from NY and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii.

Ms Harris and other Democrats will have to navigate the party's debate about whether an establishment figure who can appeal to centrist voters or a fresh face who can energise its increasingly diverse and progressive base offers the best chance to beat Mr Trump in 2020.

U.S. Senator Kamala Harris announced her candidacy for President of the United States in an interview today on ABC's "Good Morning America" and in a teaser video on her social media accounts.

Other Democrats eyeing the White House also made pitches related to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Remember when Harris got busted for releasing deceptively edited video to smear Justice Kavanaugh and push the anti- Catholic bigotry by grilling one of President Trump's judicial nominees over belonging to the Knights of Columbus?

If her bid is successful, she would be the second African-American to become president and the first woman.

Afterwards spokesman Jay Carney said: "They are old friends and good friends and he did not want in any way to diminish the attorney general's professional accomplishments and her capabilities".

As California's attorney general, she refused to defend Proposition 8, the state's ban on same-sex marriage, and also refused to certify a "Kill the Gays" ballot initiative that would have instituted the death penalty for homosexuality.

In 2014, as the AG for California, Harris issued recommendations to small and mid-sized businesses in the state to help protect against and respond to malware, data breaches, and other cyber crimes. Kamala Harris also explained her vision for the nation. The suit resulted from allegations that he sexually harassed a female assistant when they worked for Harris at the California Department of Justice.
