Sen. Kamala Harris announces she will run for president in 2020

Yet despite her references to "American values", Harris also invited her supporters to join her for a speech in Oakland on Sunday, January 27.

"The more deft among the candidates-and we'll see if Harris is among them-will figure out how to distance themselves from their records with honest apologies and, even better, actions that manifest a commitment to change", she wrote.

"The future of our country depends on you and millions of others lifting our voices to fight for our American values", Harris said in a campaign video. "I might not call her a hypocrite". "I'm running to lift those voices, to bring our voices together".

Harris is the first African-American woman to announce a run for the White House in 2020, and the third woman in the field.

Several Democrats have said they are intending to run, including Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, Tulsi Gabbard and John Delaney.

It appears she has her work cut out, however, as a recent NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll found that 54% of Democratic primary voters were unsure of, or had never heard, of her.

Almost 22 months before the 2020 election, the battle for the White House is already firming up, as Americans begin to assess who might be the opposition party nominee to challenge Mr Trump for control of the White House. She is slated to speak at the Pink Ice Gala, a major event held by the local chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority. The clear subtext throughout her appearances was that she would not be bullied by anyone, including Trump.

Along with California, Harris would attempt to notch a series of delegate wins in the southeastern states that fall in March including Alabama, North Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi and Louisiana.

As a Colombian-American, I am humbled by the opportunity to play a role that means so much to the Hispanic community", she added. The 17-year-old will star opposite Ansel Elgort , who is portraying Tony , the co-founder of the Jets, in the adaptation.

Harris chose to announce on Monday to honor the legacies of two of her heroes.

She became San Francisco's first female district attorney in 2003. when she was first elected as California's attorney general in 2010, she was the first African-American and the first person of South Asian descent to hold the job. Harris has won three statewide elections in California, giving her a potential leg up over opponents planning to compete in the vast and expensive state.

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

"All she has to show for her brief time in the Senate is a radically liberal voting record", RNC spokesman Michael Ahrens said in a statement. "This is a moment in time that I feel a sense of responsibility to stand up and fight for the best of who we are".

While the skills she honed in the courtroom have served her well in the Senate-and helped to elevate her to the forefront of the anti-Trump resistance movement-progressives have lingering and serious questions about her career as California's "top cop". Justice. Decency. Equality. Freedom.

Sanders is citing King's "incredible courage in taking on virtually the entire political and economic establishment of his time" in prepared remarks for the SC rally. "I will serve my six-year term", she replied. She argued it was a "false choice" to decide between supporting the police and advocating for greater scrutiny of law enforcement.

Her tenure as attorney general was marked by efforts to protect consumers and fight sexual trafficking. If not, that doesn't bode well for the success of her campaign.
