Kamala Harris announces to run for 2020 presidential elections
Senator Kamala D. Harris of California who was on crossroads and wanted to take the big decision along with her family has finally announced that she would be running for the presidential election of 2020. She made the announcement during an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and in a video that her campaign posted online.
She said, “The future of our country depends on you and millions of others lifting our voices to fight for our American values,” she said in the video. “That’s why I’m running for president of the United States.”
Back in 2008, Barack Obama, a freshman Democratic senator, became the first African-American man elected president of the United States. A decade later, another first-term Democrat from the Senate is making a bid for the White House, this time to become the first African-American woman to lead the nation.
Kamala Harris, 54, plans to launch her campaign at a rally on Jan. 27, in Oakland, California, where she was born and raised. "I feel a sense of responsibility to stand up for who we are," she said. Her announcement comes on the day when the people of America celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
