Sen. Kamala Harris to announce presidential run

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday, citing sources, that the California senator could announce her run on MLK Day or after, but, it added, the exact date is still being worked out. A new report says California Sen.

"I'm not saying that about myself, but I am saying that about the capacity of the American public", Harris said in response to View co-host Abby Huntsman's question on whether the country was ready for the first woman of color president following President Donald Trump's administration.

A book tour and a flurry of TV appearances enable the California senator to launch a campaign on her own terms.

Many political experts believe other Democrats who may jump into the race include former Vice President Joe Biden, former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke and Vermont Sen.

But several sources with knowledge of her plans said she has in fact made a decision to run, with the enthusiastic blessing of her husband and two stepchildren.

KCBS reported that the Harris campaign team wants a moment similar to Barack Obama's 2007 announcement at the Old State Capitol in IL.

‘There Is No Going Back’: Elizabeth Smart Offers Advice To Jayme Closs
A Facebook page called " Healing for Jayme Closs " has been set up where her family will provide updates on her condition. Jayme's grandfather Robert Naiberg said in a telephone interview on Saturday that no one in the family knew Patterson.

Advisers to Harris do not want to link the senator too closely to San Francisco, but they still prefer the Bay Area to be the backdrop for her rally, per CBS' reporting.

"Honestly, my candid response is that she's not the first nor will she be the last elected person to curse in public", Harris said. But expectations were tempered when a spokesperson for Harris told The Hill no imminent announcement was planned.

It's a chance for Harris to roll out her personal story while previewing the fundamental themes of her prospective campaign, drawn from her time as a career prosecutor and her ideas about reforming the criminal justice system. The location and timing could change. "I think we all know when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. talked about the dream, it wasn't about being asleep".

Sragow notes that as a statewide official whose husband is a prominent Los Angeles attorney, Harris could announce her candidacy anywhere in the state, from L.A.to Sacramento to Silicon Valley.

One source told Roll Call that Baltimore, with its three nearby airports and close proximity to Washington, stands atop the shortlist.

The next stop would probably be Iowa, where Harris would go on an introductory campaign swing to begin her quest for the White House in earnest.
