There's a lot of names flying around out there in the Democratic party to face off against President Trump in 2020.
Hillary Clinton being absent from the arena, has opened doors for a lot of new comers and young blood to enter the mix. But out of the crowd, there's one individual the GOP thinks could emerge, and separate themselves from the rest. California Senator Kamala Harris.
As reported by washingtonexaminer.com
Top Republicans believe that junior California Sen. Kamala Harris is likely to emerge in a crowded 2020 presidential primary as President Trump’s challenger in his re-election.
“She’s smart, cautious, has strong ties to law enforcement and a minority,” said a top GOP official. What’s more, added another, she represents the younger generation in a potential field of gray hairs.
Others are reading signs that Kamala Harris will definitely be running in 2020.newsone.com
reported the following:
California Democratic Senator Kamala Harris has been dropping major hints that she’s running for president, from appearing on talk shows like “Ellen” to increasing funding for HBCUs from $244.7 million to $279.6 million. But her latest move may be the biggest sign yet that she is aiming to be Madam President.
Harris has refused to speak at this weekend’s University of California at Berkeley’s graduation ceremony due to a labor strike there.
“Thousands of service workers with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, AFSCME, walked off the job at all 10 UC campuses Monday in protest of what they said was the University of California’s practice of hiring contractors and displacing longtime employees,” SFGate.com reported.
The labor dispute started over wages and job security.
“AFSCME 3299 negotiators have sought wage increases of 6 percent, a freeze on health-care premiums and elimination of contracting out jobs for which its members are trained,” The Sacramento Bee reported. As of now, the university has rejected its demands.
Harris tweeted her support of the workers on Monday.
Kamala Harris certainly fits the liberal mold for a potential president. She appeals to pretty much all of the liberal voters, and she has frequently spoken out against Trump. What more could the Democrats want? The true question is would she stand a chance against President Trump. We're betting no.
But what do you think? Could Harris be the key to a Democratic victory? Please share and let us know in the comments.
