Bay Area

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) has long been considered a front runner for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president. 

Is she running? 

Harris told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Wednesday that she will soon make a decision on 2020. 

 “We have to give the American people more credit, and we have to understand that the American public and the people of our country are smart people, who will make decisions about who will be their leader, based on who they believe is capable, who they believe has an honest desire to lead, to represent, to see them, to be a voice for them even if they have no power,” Harris said in the appearance.

If Harris is the next major candidate to announce a bid, she would join Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) as the major Democratic names to have thrown their hats in the ring.
