Kamala Harris Is Running For President In 2020

WASHINGTON DC- JULY 17 Sen. Kamala Harris participates in a news conference to introduce a bill to reunify immigrant famlies in the U.S. Capitol Visitors Center

Kamala Harris, the Democratic senator from California, announced Monday her 2020 White House bid, becoming the first Indian-American woman to run for United States presidency and only the second African-American woman to do so.

"Let's do this, together". "Let's claim our future, our ourselves, for our children and four our country". "Democracy. These aren't just words", Harris says in the video.

This announcement comes with little surprise as most expected Harris to throw her hat in the ring. Day holiday honoring the slain civil rights leader, and the day was selected as a reminder of the aspirational fight for progress, an aide said.

Juan Rodriguez, the strategist who managed Harris' successful campaign for Senate in 2016 and advised California Gov. Gavin Newsom in his recent campaign, will be her campaign manager.

Her campaign will focus on reducing the high cost of living with a middle-class tax credit, pursuing immigration and criminal justice changes and a Medicare-for-all healthcare system.

Her staff says she plans to reject the assistance of a super PAC, as well as corporate PAC money.

The campaign will be based in Baltimore, about 40 miles (64 km) north of Washington, with a second office in Oakland, California, where she will have a launch rally before the end of the month.

"I love my country", she said when asked what qualifies her for the presidency.

"I'm not able to be rushed this fast", he said.

However, to get into the final stretch of the race Harris will first have to clinch the Democratic nomination in what is adding up to be a crowded field.

The 2020 Democratic presidential primary will be the first time more than one woman has competed for the party's nomination.

Ms. Harris, 54, is a first-term senator from California who previously served as the state's attorney general. Harris said. "Yes, I do". Since then, she has worked to establish a national profile - by aggressively questioning President Trump's judicial nominees, writing a book and stumping for Democrats in last year's midterm elections.

Before her 2016 victory in the Senate race, Harris made her career in law enforcement.

Her mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris, a breast-cancer scientist originally from Chennai, India, brought Harris and her sister Maya to Montreal in the 1970s when she took a job teaching at McGill University and doing research at the Jewish General Hospital.

In the first 30 minutes after her announcement, Harris received individual online contributions from all 50 states, spokesman Ian Sams said on Twitter.

But Harris, who some commentators have dubbed as a "female Barack Obama" (Bi-racial, first time Senator, new generation, and left of center) has straightaway become the front-runner. One of just three black lawmakers now serving in the Senate, Harris plans on embracing that background in what will likely be a large and diverse Democratic primary field.

She also launched programs aimed at reducing implicit bias as district attorney of the city and county of San Francisco and as California's attorney general beginning in 2011. She actively prosecuted financial crimes, including "predatory" lending.

In 2017, trans activist Chelsea Manning responded to a tweeter who called Harris a hero by asking: "a hero in the war against trans people!?"
