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:
A 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.
SLEEPY: Joe Biden Campaign Team Pulls Joe from Daily Activities at 8:35AM, Months Before Election
Joe Biden’s press relations teams announced a “lid” to the traveling press pool at 8:34 EST on Saturday, surprising some observers with the announcement that the Democratic candidate would not make any public appearances on a Saturday merely seven weeks before the November presidential election.
Biden is taking it easy for the day at his home in Wilmington, Delaware.
The Biden campaign has called a lid at 8:35am, per pool. So we won’t see Joe Biden today.

After facing skepticism for the decision from some of the traveling press, a Biden campaign operative made it seem as if the off-day was some sort of calculated plan.
.@edokeefe reports the Biden move to lay low may seem “odd or misguided”, but his team disagrees.
A senior aide said, “We’ve been through some high-pressure times before and we’re always deliberate about how we respond…People will question our tactics and we’ll do our thing.”

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump is holding a packed rally in North Carolina, preceded by White House meetings and pressers with reporters.

Biden has surprised even friendly corporate media reporters covering his campaign with his amount of ‘off-days,’ consistently declining to actively campaign for the Presidency as the nation approaches the election.
The former Vice President appeared later than he usually does in public Friday night, reading from a prepared statement mourning the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Perhaps the “late night” (it was only about 9PM local time) appearance in public derailed Biden’s plans for possible campaign stops the next day. It’s relatively unprecedented for a major party presidential candidate to simply decline to campaign seven weeks before an election in the modern era of campaigns and elections.

Biden doesn’t even really have the energy to campaign. How is he going to govern as President?
