Kamala Harris begins presidential campaign

Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris of California smiles as she formally launches her presidential campaign at a rally in her hometown of Oakland Calif. Sunday Jan. 27 2019

During a CNN-sponsored town hall in Iowa Monday night, Sen.

The answer, which was succinct and direct, showed that Harris is not only aware of the criticism of her time as district attorney of San Francisco and attorney general of California, but is prepared to take it on.

"It's a flawed system".

Kamala Harris stated Monday that she feels "very strongly" about fully embracing the single-payer health insurance system, which would overhaul the entire American health care market.

Green also said that Harris' plan would widen the gap between the wealthy and those Americans who are not as monetarily stable.

Well, you just played Senator Harris as saying she wants to abolish the insurance industry.

Fatal shootings by police of unarmed black men have become a rallying point among a swath of Democratic-leaning voters.

(Harris was the only potential 2020 presidential candidate who voted against the deal in February 2018 that would have created protections for Dreamers in exchange for wall funding).

Kamala Harris faces questions from USA voters Monday as an official White House candidate, a day after the Democratic senator formally declared her 2020 bid to become America's first black female president.

Police say Fitzgerald traveled at speeds as high as 70 miles per hour, stopping and accelerating when Kamrowski didn't get off. Two fellow drivers helped bring the risky situation to an end by boxing in the SUV and forcing Fitzgerald to stop.

Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of NY and Elizabeth Warren of MA, who have taken steps toward presidential bids of their own, also have been confronted with questions about potential liabilities during appearances in Iowa this month. When CBS "60 Minutes" anchor Anderson Cooper described her plan as "radical" in a January 4 interview, Ocasio-Cortez responded, "I think that it only has ever been radicals that have changed this country".

Ms Harris's campaign is expected to highlight her career as a prosecutor.

Listing the various proposals that have been introduced, she argued that legislators have no shortage of good ideas: "What's missing is for people in the United States Congress to act the right way". She also said that, as president, she would "always speak with decency and moral clarity and treat all people with dignity and respect".

Klein said he thinks the 2020 election will be a referendum on President Trump. That contrasts with the approach of other declared Democratic candidates, including Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA, who held roughly half a dozen events over three days during her first visit after announcing a likely presidential bid.

Senators Elizabeth Warren, of MA, and Kirsten Gillibrand, of NY, have announced exploratory committees.

But another billionaire businessman, former NY mayor Michael Bloomberg, strongly urged Schultz to halt his independent antics.

Harris succinctly responded with, "How do I describe myself?"

Harris addressed her detractors briefly in her launch speech, saying: "I am not flawless". The state of California has played a leading role in resistance to the presidency of Donald Trump.
