Harris Whips Through Iowa as She Battles Warren for Top Status

Democrat Harris gets support from Iowa's Deidre DeJear

U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris' slogan for her 2020 presidential campaign is quite a familiar one for Central Floridians: "For the People".

So far she has largely evaded attempts to pigeonhole her, allowing supporters to pitch her as a candidate that can unite the disparate...

Her speech, carried live on U.S. cable news networks, marked the culmination of a choreographed week-long media plan that has established Ms Harris, 54, as the frontrunner in what is expected to become a very crowded Democratic field. She says that racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, homophobia and transphobia are real in the USA and must be recognized and dealt with.

The first-term California senator, who announced her candidacy on Monday, plans a speech at a rally in Oakland, her hometown, later Sunday, as she outlines her campaign.

Harris went on to talk about the fact that - as she said - lawmakers had "failed to act" to enact gun safety laws even after tragedies like the shooting of Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in 2011, or the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting in 2012. "Of the people. For all the people".

Harris (shown above right) officially kicked off her bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination over the weekend.

Westbrook finished with 26 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds and Steven Adams notched a 17-point, 15-rebound double-double. Josh Hart leads the team in 3-point percentage, but as a young player is still inconsistent and unable to carry the team.

Senators Elizabeth Warren, of MA, and Kirsten Gillibrand, of NY, have announced exploratory committees.

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) speaks to reporters at Drake University on Monday in Des Moines.

During an interview on CBS News, the 65-year-old said he is not always the smartest person in the room but can build teams of people who are "more skilled" than himself.

Meanwhile, President Trump said yesterday that former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz did not have the "guts" to run for the presidency and questioned his intellect just 24 hours after he announced a possible White House bid. If voters are told that Medicare for All requires raising taxes and long wait times at the doctor, support for it collapses. We know it ended a little short for him. 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.

One distinct advantage for Harris is the shift that her home state has made in the primary calendar. She will not vote for a wall on the southern border "under any circumstances;" wants a new national paid paternal leave entitlement; and has endorsed the "Green New Deal" popularized by socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. - a set of policies that would reduce the American economy to agrarian subsistence by ending the free market system. This is something Harris seemed to use to her advantage.
