Kamala Harris Emerges Frontrunner To Oust Trump In 2020 White House Bid

Kamala Harris Emerges Frontrunner To Oust Trump In 2020 White House Bid”

When questions began to swirl over her impartiality, Harris has become keen to distance herself from the former mayor.

"And I think it's great that we have four maybe five women running for president because it's wonderful for America to see what American leadership looks like in all its forms", she added.

Harris joins early Democratic contenders including former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, Maryland's John Delaney, Hawaii's Tulsi Gabbard and NY senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

"I'm running for president because I love my country", declared the 54-year-old, whose father is Jamaican and mother is Indian.

Exactly one week ago on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Brown was also reportedly key to helping Harris gain the support of wealthy campaign donors during her run for San Francisco district attorney in the early 2000's. I ask why she is laughing in homage to the question that Esquire asked annually about Richard Nixon, but I know why she is laughing.

She still has a long road ahead of her, with nearly two years to go until the 2020 election, but her supporters say she can not afford to take her foot off the pedal.

"Well I certainly wouldn't say it that way", she said.

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.

After the rally, Harris planned to her first trip to Iowa as a presidential candidate.

Harris instead insisted that it was a "very painful experience" for her.

Harris has faced recent controversy over the revelation that she was unaware that one of her top aides, when she was Attorney General of California, settled a workplace harassment lawsuit. It has historically voted near the end of the Democratic primary, with the nominees often already decided, but has moved its vote forward to "Super Tuesday" - March 3, 2020 - giving it a much bigger say in determining the nominee.

She continued to lay out what she called "truths" in what actually signaled her strongest policy stances: debt-free college, Medicare for all, climate change action, tackling discrimination, and treating the opioid crisis as "a national public health emergency".

As reported by USA Today, Brown was married at the time he and Harris dated, but their relationship was not kept secret as he had been "estranged from his wife" Blanche Brown since 1981, according to People. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and to using his position of power to boost Harris's career in politics.

Harris addressed her detractors briefly in her launch speech, saying: "I am not flawless". "They seemed to be under the misimpression that I could be bullied into submission", she scoffs.
