Sen. Kamala Harris has chose to run for president in 2020 and will announce her candidacy on or around Martin Luther King Jr.
The intent is to draw a contrast with Donald Trump by presenting her credentials as a tough, fact-based prosecutor against a factually challenged president who has been under a legal cloud for much of his presidency.
"We need to legalize marijuana and regulate it", Harris writes.
Though California is Harris' home state, her team wants to locate its headquarters on the East Coast, near the major cable news outlets and within quicker flying distance to some of the early Midwestern and East Coast primaries and caucuses, such as Iowa, New Hampshire and SC.
While Harris has not confirmed plans to run, she is widely considered to be a potential 2020 candidate, along with Sen.
Harris said that as a leader of the #MeToo movement, "it was a very painful experience to know that something could happen in one's office of nearly 5,000 people, granted, but that I didn't know about it".More news: Wisconsin Bus Driver Rescues Little Boy Running Down Sidewalk Alone

While Harris said that she took "full responsibility", she did not apologize and did not acknowledge the alleged victim involved in the incident.
"We need to legalize marijuana and regulate it", she adds. "But with each woman who gains success, I think there is a greater appreciation and understanding of the capacity and breadth and depth of who women are and what we can do", Ms. Harris said.
The senator's book is not a traditional memoir, but according to her publisher, "a book about the core truths that unite us, and the long struggle to discern what those truths are and how best to act upon them, in her own life and across the life of our country".
Tapper noted that Wallace helped Harris run the California Department of Justice when she was the Attorney General. Former US President Barack Obama described her as trailblazer.
Speaking of the government shutdown, Harris, on a CNN show, said, "It is a false choice to suggest that we're going to hold 800,000 federal workers and all of the services that they provide hostage for this president's vanity project". Trump had promised during his presidential campaign in 2016 that he would build a wall on the United States-Mexico border to prevent an influx of illegal immigrants. Democrats are refusing to allocate the money, arguing that a wall would be costly and ineffective. "Given today's Democratic Party, that president will be Kamala Harris".
"We've had enough of these powerful voices that are trying to sow hate and division among us", Ms. Harris said.
