Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) for president in the 2020 election, saying she "embraces the future". Day, when Harris first announced she was running for president, the senator conducted her first press conference at Howard University. Harris also has the backing of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf. "I'm running to be president of the people, by the people and for all people".

Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown admitted over the weekend to having an extramarital affair with Democratic presidential hopeful Sen.

As the daughter of immigrants, a battle between this pair has the potential for fireworks, and would reflect the tenor of deep political divide in America.

During the event, Harris vowed to fight "for the people" and criticized Trump for dividing the country.

"I've been consistent my whole career", she said in response to a question that asked her to address her "contradictory past". If elected, she would become the first African American woman president in United States history. "That is not our America". Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) and Sen.

MA senator Elizabeth Warren and South Bend Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg have announced exploratory committees - used to determine whether a potential candidate should run for office.

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

Kamala Harris' prime-time town hall brought her into the living rooms of many more Americans.

Shortly after announcing her candidacy on Martin Luther King Jr.

Harris invoked the speech that Robert F. Kennedy gave in 1968 when he announced that he would challenge President Lyndon B. Johnson, noting that 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".

"That's a risk I refused to run in 2016 and we can't afford to run it now".

Harris went on to use the word "truth" in her speech 22 times.

For years, California - the nation's most populous state - voted near the end of the process, meaning nominees were often decided before a single Californian cast a vote.

Harris's father is from Jamaica and her mother is Indian.

Harris, a former state attorney general, said her platform will include several progressive policies like debt-free college, a "green new deal" addressing climate change and "Medicare for all", which would allow Americans to opt into government-run health coverage.

She has attributed her decision to become a lawyer and a prosecutor to her upbringing, and said Sunday that she and her sister were "raised to believe that public service is a noble cause and the fight for justice is everyone's responsibility".

But her record has also caused controversy among progressives.

Joseph A. Wulfsohn is a media reporter for Fox News.

According to Brown in a recent op-ed, he appointed Harris to two high level positions during her early career.

I find Harris tough to take. "And that's what she did". "They seemed to be under the misimpression that I could be bullied into submission", she scoffs. "But I will always speak with decency and moral clarity and treat all people with dignity and respect".

"We are here because the American Dream and our American democracy are under attack and on the line like never before", she said, adding, "America, we are better than this".

Perhaps the biggest question is how she will stand up to Trump when she becomes his target.
