Democrats full of excitement, anxiety as 2020 contenders begin 'Roman theatre torture'

Kamala Harris campaign

Sen. Harris, D-Calif., on Monday announced she would be seeking the Democratic nomination for president, launching her campaign among an already crowded field.

Last week, a widely-circulated New York Times op-ed written by Lara Bazelon, a law professor and the former director of the Loyola Law School Project for the Innocent in Los Angeles, argued that Harris can not be considered a "progressive prosecutor" given her record as attorney general in California. "That's why I'm running for president of the United States", the senator said in a video posted on Twitter. "I'm running to lift those voices, to bring our voices together".

Later in the conversation with "GMA" anchors George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts, the former California prosecutor, who was elected to the Senate in 2016, said President Trump has "absolutely" compromised the American peoples' faith in the "integrity of our system of justice". Let's claim our future. Her home state of California also has moved up its primary to increase its influence.

During an emotional exchange between Harris and Professor Christine Blasey Ford, Harris said she believed Ford and praised her courage for coming forward.

Harris has done little to hide her presidential ambitions. While all the leading candidates have strengths, they also have clear weakness that could undermine their chances of defeating Trump. The question has become an early litmus test for what's expected to be a sprawling field with a record number of women.

"My parents were very active in the civil-rights movement, and that's the language that I grew up hearing", she said. Kirsten Gillibrand of NY have public events scheduled, as do a number of other possible contenders, including former vice-president Joe Biden, former NY mayor Michael Bloomberg and senators Cory Booker and Bernie Sanders.

In addition to Harris, Warren, Gabbard, and Gillibrand, Julián Castro, Rep. John Delaney, and Richard Ojeda have all officially announced their 2020 presidential campaigns for the Democratic Party's nomination.

Indian-Americans, and US Democrats at large, will face a choice between Tulsi and Kamala among others in a race from the left to challenge Donald Trump for the White House in 2020.

Harris, who served as California's attorney general before joining the Senate, made her long-anticipated announcement on Monday during an appearance on ABC's 'Good Morning America'. They're the values we as Americans cherish. 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 she wants to win the nomination, Warren is going to have to convince African-American and other non-white voters that her emphasis is the right one, both for their interests and for winning the general election.

While in office, Harris built up a strong history of supporting LGBTQ rights.

Harris will hold a formal campaign launch in Oakland next week.

Her announcement came on a day when the USA celebrates the legacy of civil rights leader Martin Luther King.

After US District Judge Jon Tigar ordered the state to allow Norsworthy-who was in prison for second-degree murder-to have the surgery, Harris appealed the decision to the US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
