2019 may just be starting, but the 2020 election season is in full swing as Sen. Kamala Harris has decided to throw her hat into the ring to be the 2020 presidential nominee for the Democratic Party.

Sources tell KCBS that the senator from California plans on making her announcement sometime around Martin Luther King Jr. Day in Oakland, California.

It appears Harris has been prepping for this moment as she has begun making her rounds on TV networks promoting her latest book, “The Truths We Hold: An American Journey.”

Harris has often denounced questions about a presidential run with some sort of variation of “I’m not ready yet,” KCBS radio reports.

However, sources tell the radio station that the senator is ready to hit the campaign trail with the blessing of her husband and two stepchildren.

While sources say that the plan to announce the campaign will be later on in January, some critics say she needs to just go ahead and announce her candidacy.

Democratic strategist Darry Sragow told the CBS radio station, “If she really has decided to run, my advice would be, announce. Don’t drag this out.”

This could partially be due to what could be a crowded race for the Democratic nomination.

In December, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren announced she was forming an exploratory committee before she formally announces her candidacy.

Additionally, former San Antonio mayor and secretary of Housing and Urban Development under the Obama administration, Julian Castro, threw his hat into the ring early on announcing his candidacy in mid-December.

Other potential candidates for the Democratic nomination include former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke.

One of the reasons Harris could be announcing her candidacy in Oakland, California, is while she served as the district attorney of San Fransico, sources tell the radio station that her advisors are wanting her to avoid being too closely related to San Fransico.

Sragow says, “San Francisco is viewed as a very nutty place by people outside of California, and frankly, by a lot of people inside California.”

Harris was born in Oakland and later returned to the area after finishing law school to become Alameda County’s deputy district attorney.

        No, to replace him. The Left will get behind her far more than they did with Rodham. The same bloc that voted in Obama twice…suburban soccer moms…will align with Harris. Trump would best anyone easily but Harris. She is Obama with balls.

    Oh hell no! Honestly I haven’t seen a female candidate in all my years that even began to qualify for president run for the office. She stands zero chance against Trump.

    After Obama pitting blacks against whites I don’t think a black has a Chance nor does a socialist like Beto. And how could Dems want Biden when they talk of old white men and besides he’s from the Obama administration.

    Another numbskull whose ego is so large she thinks she can win POTUS. Its sad to think about all the millions of $$$ these idiots waste when they run for an office they know they have no chance at all in winning.. its sad that their Ego’s are so huge they completely ignor fact, reason and warnings from others who actually KNOW about such matters and try to run anyway. Like Hillary, imagine what all the $$$ she wasted on her campaign could have bought for the poor? how many hungry kids it could have fed? or how many pairs of shoes or coats it could have bought the homeless? But these people like her and Harris and the rest of the dems dont think of helping others like they love to preach about, they only think of the power they’d get with the POTUS position and what it can do for them personally and for their pocket books and bank accounts!

    A natural born citizen is someone born on U.S. soil to a citizen father and citizen mother! Jus soli and jus sanguinis! Soil and blood! MUST be born in the U.S. and to parents (plural) who are themselves, citizens (again, plural)! Kamala Harris isn’t constitutionally eligible. Her mother was from India and came here in 1960. Her Jamaican father came here in 1961. They had not lived in the U.S. long enough to have become citizens before Kamala was born in 1964. She is a citizen only through the 14th Amendment which does not and cannot make anyone a natural born citizen. She is not eligible to be president or vice president.
