On Monday, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) officially announced that she will run for president in 2020.

“Truth, justice, decency, equality, freedom, democracy,” Harris said in a video announcement posted to her Twitter account. “These aren’t just words. These are values that we as Americans cherish, and they’re all on the line now. The future of our country depends on you, and millions of others lifting our voices to fight for our American values. That’s why I’m running for president of the United Sates. I’m running to lift those voices. To bring our voices together.”

The political left, obsessed with identity politics, appears to be eating itself alive.

“The first question Harris gets is about criticism of her record on transgender rights for inmates as AG. ‘It was an office with a lot of people and I wish sometimes that they had consulted with me,’ she says. Expect a lot more Qs and answers like this,” reported Molly Hensley-Clancy from Howard University, where Harris held a press conference Monday afternoon.

Harris’ plans to run for president were leaked on Jan. 10, when someone close to her campaign announced her plans.

Big League Politics reported:

Thursday morning report by KCBS radio said that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is planning to announce a 2020 presidential run.

“Sen. Kamala Harris has decided to run for president in 2020 and will announce her candidacy on or around Martin Luther King Jr. Day, probably at a campaign rally in Oakland, sources close to the freshman senator from California tell KCBS Radio,” the radio station said.

Harris enters an already-crowded field of Democratic Party hopefuls, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), and former San Antonio Mayor and Democrat Julian Castro. Others who could make a presidential bid include former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I.Vt.), and failed U.S. Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

Published

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
