Senator Kamala Harris, former Attorney General of California, on Monday confirmed that she will be contesting 2020 presidential election.
Notably, if elected, Harris would be the first African-American woman and first woman of Asian heritage as president.
"Kamala Harris: For the people", is not just her campaign slogan, it's how she used to announce herself as a prosecutor, in the courtroom. Day to tell the country that "we know America can be better than this" and call on potential supporters to come "together" in order to "fight for our American values". The campaign will be based in Baltimore, with a second office in Oakland.
Amid speculation of Harris's presidential aspirations, the California senator revealed in December she would make a decision on whether or not to launch a 2020 presidential run over the holiday season.
Harris is bypassing the formal exploratory stage and going all-in. Sens. Elizabeth Warren of MA and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY have opened exploratory committees, while Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is readying her run.
But Ms Harris has also experienced discrimination.
Richard Odeja and representative John Delaney have also declared, but there is no clear front-runner as yet.
She will hold a launch rally in Oakland before the end of the month.
She's already got a website up, which details (in not very much detail) her policies which include: tax cuts for the middle class, single-payer healthcare, tuition-free public colleges and a program that would test giving out guaranteed jobs for anyone who's interested. On Friday, Harris will travel to SC to attend the Pink Ice Gala in Columbia, which is hosted by a SC chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, which Harris pledged as an undergraduate student at Howard University.

"It makes me nervous", Sessions said.
The kickoff state of Iowa, which launched Barack Obama's presidential bid in 2008, has a strong base of liberal activists, and the race will then quickly move to more diverse states such as Nevada and SC.
The campaign chair will be Maya Harris, the candidate's sister and a former senior adviser to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
She's framing her campaign through her courtroom experience.
As California's attorney general, she refused to defend Proposition 8, the state's ban on same-sex marriage, and also refused to certify a "Kill the Gays" ballot initiative that would have instituted the death penalty for homosexuality.
"My mother was the strongest person I have ever known", she has written on Twitter.
During her last visit to Iowa, Harris fondly recalled her days campaigning for her longtime friend Barack Obama in 2008 when she was the relatively unknown district attorney of San Francisco.
"She was a good person", said former classmate Dean Smith. A damning op-ed recently published in the New York Times accused Harris of fighting "tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors".
Harris chose to announce on Monday to honor the legacies of two of her heroes.
