Sen. Kamala Harris to announce presidential run

Sen. Kamala Harris to announce presidential run

Her book "The Truths We Hold: An American Journey" hit the book stores on Wednesday. "They are smarter than that".

In her memoir published Tuesday, the California Democrat describes herself as a "progressive prosecutor" and says it's a "false choice" to decide between supporting the police and advocating for greater scrutiny of law enforcement. Harris is especially important because she's more representative of where the state is going than our senior senator, Dianne Feinstein, who is the oldest member of the Senate, and has been less than reliable when it comes to countering Trump. Tapper asked. "And what did you learn about it given that it kind of struck close to home?"

"So I'm pleased to announce on The View that I'm not ready to make my announcement just yet", Harris answered coyly. The San Francisco Chronicle reports Harris intends to make the announcement on January 21 during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

Though California is Harris' home state, her team wants to locate its headquarters on the East Coast, near the major cable news outlets and within quicker flying distance to some of the early Midwestern and East Coast primaries and caucuses, such as Iowa, New Hampshire and SC.

The junior senator applauded rookie congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for her passion. And those are the issues I think about.

"That being said, I take full responsibility for anything that has happened in my office", she said. "And if there's not merit to that, then let's explore new ideas". The conversation quickly veered towards the highly anticipated 2020 presidential race that has many wondering which Democrats will throw their hat into the ring. Harris said she "begged" and "pleaded" on a late Friday afternoon for a judge to hear the case so the woman could avoid spending the weekend in jail.

"Emma Lazarus's words, 'Give me your exhausted, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, ' speaks to the true character of what our country can be: a generous country that respects and embraces those who have made the hard journey to our shores, often fleeing harm", Harris wrote.

"We've had enough of these powerful voices that are trying to sow hate and division among us", Ms. Harris said. "We can do that and also focus on issues like what we need to do to build a healthy economy".
