Kamala Harris Hits Campaign Trail, Drawing 20000 in Hometown Rally

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

And at a town hall event last night, Sen.

Morgan, a longtime Democratic fundraiser who considered a run for governor himself before becoming an independent, said that the origins of his firm's famous phrase is simple: "I stole it from Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence". "I'm running to be president of the people, by the people, and for all people".

Early on in her speech, Ms. Harris invoked memories of her mother, Shyamala Gopalan, a biologist who immigrated to the USA from Chennai. America, we are better than this.

"And guys, let us understand what is happening here: people in power are trying to convince us that the villain in our American story in each other", Ms. Harris said, adding that "age-old forms of hate with new fuel", including racism, sexism and homophobia were real in America. "That is not our America".

In addition to Harris, Senators Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand and former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro have already announced plans to join the presidential race, while former Vice President Joe Biden, former Texas Representative Beto O'Rourke, Senators Cory Booker and Bernie Sanders and others are still mulling over whether to throw their hat into the ring.

Sens. Elizabeth Warren of MA and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY have announced exploratory committees.

I'm a single working mom of three who just got a $2,900.00 bill for a 30 minute appointment with a specialist for my twin daughters (@UHC). She often deflects the question by quoting her mother, who told her, "You may be the first to do many things, but make sure you're not the last".

"We're not waiting for a tragedy", she said. We know it ended a little short for him. In her speech, Harris leveraged her work as a prosecutor to present herself as a fierce champion for the people, telling the Oakland crowd how she created skill and job training programs instead of prison time for young people facing drug charges.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, whose show has become an essential stop-off for Democratic hopefuls, told her: "Honestly, I think there is a good chance that you are going to win the nomination". Kamala Harris (D-CA) will sit down with CNN's Jake Tapper in a town hall interview.

Academy players rested as Guardiola goes full strength for FA Cup
Who are the best clubs in the last decade? "But at the same time I tell them it's a privilege", he added. Sergio Aguero made no mistake from the spot to seal another big win for Guardiola's side.

Brexit: What is the Irish backstop?
She also refused to rule out the prospect of resigning in order to vote against the Cooper amendment . MPs have authorised Theresa May to go back to Brussels and try to renegotiate her Brexit deal .

Warmer, windy Sunday ahead of Monday morning snow
Snow accumulations shouldn't amount to much because the storm system will be moving too fast to produce large totals. The coldest temperature ever recorded for the month of January in the Quad Cities may also be tested.

She also gets a boost from having California as her home state.

That said, she also maintained record-high conviction rates as district attorney, and maintained most status quo positions on issues of over-incarceration and the death penalty.

Lahren said former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, 84, revealed he had an extramarital affair with Harris, 54, over two decades ago. Overall, 57 percent of adults say the rules should be tighter.

The notion that the USA, which spends about $600 billion per year to keep its military running and gave a $1.5 trillion tax cut to the wealthiest Americans as well as permanently cutting corporate taxes by 14 percent a year ago, is unable to afford a national healthcare system is familiar to advocates-but numerous recent studies from across the political spectrum have helped to debunk the claim.

But her record has also caused controversy among progressives.

Ms Harris, known for her rigorous questioning of Mr Trump's nominees, has vowed to "bring our voices together".

Not only that, but when Angel families attempted to meet with Harris at her office - to show her photos of their children, killed at the hands of illegal immigrants - they said her staff threatened to call Capitol Police.

Critics immediately responded to Harris, asking whether the same tactic should be applied prior to votes about abortion legislation or funding to abortion providers.
