Sen. Kamala Harris town hall with CNN’s Jake Tapper

Democrat Harris gets support from Iowa's Deidre DeJear

Democrat Harris gets support from Iowa's Deidre DeJear

Harris immediately took her campaign to Iowa, the state that votes first in the nominating process, holding a televised town hall from Des Moines where she eviscerated the Trump administration for "lighting that fire" of racial division and seeking to "vilify" young immigrants.

"It's a flawed system". Kamala Harris, standing outside of Oakland's city hall, formally kicked off her campaign for the White House by presenting herself as the leader who can best unite an America that is at an "inflection point" and facing a critical question. She is not making a case against private health insurance that is dysfunctional or disliked; she is arguing for the complete elimination of insurance plans that people have had positive experiences with-plans that, as Tapper says, people like.

Republicans should not make the naive mistake of believing Harris is too far Left to win, should she be the Democratic nominee.

While Harris has emerged as a strong contender in the 2020 race, the California senator enters an already crowded field as high-profile Democrats continue to join the race.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) has the ideal response to anyone wondering if a woman can really beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. They are sending me things about things about Kamala Harris and telling me what they don't like about her and what we ought to all be anxious about. 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".

She added that she has had similar conversations with fathers and sons. "Here's the reality of it also: we're not waiting for a good idea".

Harris' first news conference as a candidate was on the campus of Howard University, the historically black college in the nation's capital that she attended as an undergraduate.

Klein said he thinks the 2020 election will be a referendum on President Trump.

If she were to be elected, her victory would be historic: Ms Harris would be the first woman, first female African-American, and first person of Asian descent to become American president.

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

The compelling Oakland speech was a show of strength by Harris and most likely a calculated shot across the bow to those still on the 2020 sidelines, notably the four Bs mulling a run: Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker and Beto O'Rourke.

But another billionaire businessman, former NY mayor Michael Bloomberg, strongly urged Schultz to halt his independent antics. Lord knows, I am not ideal.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) on Monday endorsed Sen. Instead, it shows signs of turning on President Trump's job approval, as well as on questions of identity and immigration.
