Alleged Kamala Harris affair sheds light on cronyism in Calif. government

U.S. Senator Kamala Harris waves to supporters during her presidential campaign launch rally in Frank H. Ogawa Plaza in Oakland, California, on January 27.

"It's a flawed system".

DeJear was Iowa's first African American to win a primary for statewide office past year, but lost in her attempt to unseat Iowa's Republican secretary of state.

Harris, whose father is from Jamaica and whose mother is Indian, said that "in the face of powerful forces trying to sow hate and division among us, the truth is that as Americans, we have so much more in common than what separates us".

It is a burgeoning field that may ultimately feature dozens of candidates seeking to oust President Donald Trump.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) has the flawless response to anyone wondering if a woman can really beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. "And we are here at this moment in time because we must answer a fundamental question: Who are we?" When CBS "60 Minutes" anchor Anderson Cooper described her plan as "radical" in a January 4 interview, Ocasio-Cortez responded, "I think that it only has ever been radicals that have changed this country".

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". Day, when Harris first announced she was running for president, the senator conducted her first press conference at Howard University.

Klein said he thinks the 2020 election will be a referendum on President Trump.

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. Their early entry could help them establish a foothold in anticipation of potential campaigns by former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont or former Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke. Her campaign reported raising $1.5 million from roughly 38,000 donors during the first 24 hours after she announced her campaign on January 21. She's promising free everything. Law professor Lara Bazleoni in a New York Times op-ed last week cited occasions on which Ms Harris backed contentious policies, and some on social media shared photos of her posing with immigration agents, along with the hashtag #NeverKamala.

I'm gonna just tell you, based on the stuff that my friends are sending me, there are a lot of people on our side scared to death of Kamala Harris. "But I will always speak with decency and moral clarity and treat all people with dignity and respect".

One prominent Californian, outspoken Congressman Ted Lieu, has already endorsed Harris, describing her as "the person we need to move America forward". Trump can beat her.
