Sen. Kamala Harris Enters 2020 Presidential Race

Harris, California's former attorney general who won a seat to replace longtime Democratic Sen.

"The core of Ms Norsworthy's complaint is that Defendants have not provided the particular treatment she wants, sex-reassignment surgery and unspecified 'additional treatment, '" Harris wrote.

Her campaign will focus on reducing the high cost of living with a middle-class tax credit, pursuing immigration and criminal justice changes and a Medicare-for-all healthcare system.

Her signs will carry her campaign theme "Kamala Harris for the people", the words that she spoke each time she rose in the courtroom as a prosecutor.

Her announcement has been described as "historic" by Vox, with many Twitter pundits seemingly in agreement.

"There are powerful forces - including this president - that are attempting to vilify immigrants because they were born in another country", she said recently on CNN. Day, and her campaign's logo and color scheme draw inspiration from the 1972 presidential bid of Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman to run for the presidency from one of the major parties. His presence at a Columbia church service Monday and a rally after, as well as several other events in the state, signaled that he plans to redouble efforts in SC should he launch a second White House bid in 2020. Day, Harris' campaign says that is meant to highlight "a reminder of the aspirational fight for progress that marked Harris' upbringing and that guides her today".

Confirming what had been speculated for months, senator Kamala Harris will enter the Democratic presidential race for 2020.

Warren said King's fight was not just about civil rights, but also about economic rights. We know that we've not yet reached those ideals. "And we are the best of who we are when we fight to achieve those ideals", Harris said.

Winning her delegate-rich home state of California, which votes relatively early on March 3, compared with its 2016 primary in early June, could make Harris the favorite.

A recent NPR/PBS Newshour/Marist poll found that a majority of Americans, 54 percent, have not yet formed an opinion of Harris.

In one brief signed by Harris, the court was encouraged to stay the order because hormone treatment was sufficient for the moment.

Harris's announcement comes about a week after New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI). The first member of the tiny minority community to run for White House was Bobby Jindal, the Republican governor of Louisiana.

Senators Elizabeth Warren of MA and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY have both launched exploratory committees while former Obama administration housing chief Julian Castro has declared his intentions.

"Sooner or later, they're going to have to have a female as president", Smith said.

She sought to use the anecdotes in the new book to demonstrate her toughness, including how she took on the big banks as California's attorney general after the foreclosure crisis and held out for a $20 billion settlement for California homeowners.

Harris chose to announce on Monday to honor the legacies of two of her heroes.
