Kamala Harris Defines Her 2020 Fight in Iowa Town Hall

Kamala Harris lays out the core ideals of her 2020 campaign in her new book ‘The Truths We Hold

"And then you vote your conscience", she continued. That's more than former President Barack Obama had at his first rally back when he launched in his campaign back in 2007. Since her announcement, Harris has been criticized for her background as a prosecutor for the District Attorney of San Francisco, and Attorney General of California.

She was elected to the Senate in 2016. The Republican National Committee shared the clip, and also said that her plan would cost $32.6 trillion, eliminate private plans, "devastate" Medicare and "double your income taxes".

"We are here because the American Dream and our American democracy are under attack and on the line like never before", Ms Harris said. This is something Harris seemed to use to her advantage.

After Iowa's caucuses and New Hampshire's primary, the nomination calendar favors a candidate like Harris who might be well positioned to win strong support from black voters in the South and of Democrats in the western states of Nevada and California. "I think that's really the most important takeaway, which is that with each barrier we break, it is saying to all of us, don't be burdened by what has been". California is a big opportunity for fundraising and for building a base of support.

She invoked the speech that Robert F Kennedy gave in 1968 when he announced that he would challenge President Lyndon B Johnson, noting that Mr Kennedy said "at stake is not simply the leadership of our party and even our country, it is our right to moral leadership of this planet".

"Elizabeth Warren kind of got the campaign season started". "Eventually we're all going to be the VA [Department of Veterans Affairs], except the.1 percent who can afford concierge doctors". "A lot of people thought she should have run four years ago and she decided not to", he explained.

Complicating the launch, billionaire former Starbucks chief executive Howard Schultz said hours after her announcement that he is seriously considering entering the race - as an independent. "Senator Gillibrand from NY is another one".

Listing the various proposals that have been introduced, she argued that legislators have no shortage of good ideas: "What's missing is for people in the United States Congress to act the right way".

Heavyweights Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker and Beto O'Rourke are also reportedly weighing up a run, with the field expected to eventually include around a dozen candidates. He had a huge following last time.

Trump, clearly aware that a Schultz run could help the sitting president, wasted little time in seeking to goad him into the race, declaring the coffee king "doesn't have the "guts" to run for President!" "Will he be able to capture the same momentum?" "He can wait maybe a little bit other than the others, because of the celebrity he derived from it". These polls do not mean that Trump will lose the 2020 election.
