The field of 2020 Democratic challengers is already getting crowded. California Sen. Kamala Harris announced Monday on ABC’s Good Morning America that she’s in.

Harris is the fourth prominent woman to join the race, behind Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. She is also the first African American to enter the race, notes CNN. In fact, Harris is one of the most prominent black women in politics, per the New York Times.

“I love my country. I love my country,” she said. “This is a moment in time when I feel a sense of responsibility to stand up and fight.”

Harris, 54, was elected to the Senate in 2016, becoming only its second African-American woman. Prior to that, she served two terms as California’s attorney general. “Justice. Decency. Equality. Freedom. Democracy.

These aren’t just words,” said Harris in an announcement video. “They’re the values we as Americans cherish. And they’re all on the line now.” (Read more Kamala Harris stories.)

    I haven’t followed her much but she does look like a person that could be sold to the public. She’d even appeal to the haters if she had a tough on crime record as prosecutor. Sure it would piss off a certain percentage of lefties but I really think more people would support the idea of being tough on crime than would be of a more forgiving nature. And I think she would mop the floor with most anyone in a debate. Like Christie did to that idiot Mark Rubio a couple years ago. Rubio will never recover, at least on the national stage.
