Harris Emerges As Frontrunner To Oust Trump As Rivals Circle

Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris of California smiles as she formally launches her presidential campaign at a rally in her hometown of Oakland Calif. Sunday Jan. 27 2019

Democrat Harris gets support from Iowa's Deidre DeJear

Kamala Harris - who has announced her candidacy for the 2020 presidentialelection - voiced support for a Medicare-for-all system that would potentially eliminate the entire private insurance market.

Rather than discuss Harris's policy positions or mention her impressively attended campaign launch in Oakland, they made a decision to focus on this, because that's the respect they show women. Kamala Harris, standing outside of Oakland's city hall, formally kicked off her campaign for the White House by presenting herself as the leader who can best unite an America that is at an "inflection point" and facing a critical question. "We dismissed the charges against her, and overall we've improved attendance for this population in SF by 20 percent over the last two years".

According to a recent poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation, 56 percent of survey respondents said they favored a Medicare-for-all plan.

During her townhall, Harris said she would support the Green New Deal, wants to get rid of private insurance to have Medicare-for-All, and ban "assault weapons".

"It's a flawed system".

Kamala Harris faces questions from U.S. voters Monday as an official White House candidate, a day after the Democratic senator formally declared her 2020 bid to become America's first black female president.

Questions about his relationship with Harris were reignited after she announced her 2020 presidential bid on Martin Luther King Day. But Harris' record is one both of steps forward and backward; as she moves forward in pursuit of the Oval Office, her efforts to connect with black voters - and black voters' rightful attempts to hold her accountable for her previous actions - could hold the key to her political future.

A child of Jamaican and Indian immigrants, Ms. Harris was, in 2010, the first woman of African and Indian descent to become California's Attorney-General, and, in 2016, the second African-American woman in the U.S. Senate. She's promising free everything.

Lieu, who is among the most outspoken critics of President Trump, backed his home state senator over a steadily growing field of other Democratic candidates.

"There is a lot of work to do", she told a crowd at Drake University, deftly handling questions from health care to criminal justice reform to gun safety to the war in Afghanistan.

This will be perhaps the most high-stakes presidential election in history. But he took a traditional approach with his first 2019 landing in Iowa as a likely presidential candidate.

Hickenlooper's record on energy issues and climate change could put him at odds with the Democratic base that dominates the nomination process. "I think that's really the most important takeaway, which is that with each barrier we break, it is saying to all of us, don't be burdened by what has been".

Later, at a Des Moines brew pub, Hickenlooper mingled with patrons and potential supporters.

"Seems like free advertising for me", Morgan said past year of the Democrats' use of the slogan.
