Senator Kamala Harris recently announced that she will be running for president in the 2020 election and has begun to share her agenda.

By launching her campaign early - a year before any primary votes are cast - the California lawmaker leapfrogs several party luminaries waiting in the wings, and a few already in the race, to become the de facto frontrunner.

The announcement was met with immediate criticism by her political opponents.

Her speech, carried live on United States cable news networks, marked the culmination of a choreographed week-long media plan that has established Ms Harris, 54, as the frontrunner in what is expected to become a very crowded Democratic field.

Applause rang out as she added, "There is no reason why we can not have reasonable gun safety laws in this country".

She was also asked early on about the rise of racism and hate crimes that coincided with Donald Trump's presidential campaign and hs thrived under his presidency. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who ran for the Democratic nomination in 2016, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have brought other ideas, such as a Green New Deal, from the fringes into the halls of Congress.

Harris said she chose not to take a public position on the fatal shootings legislation in 2015 because her office would write the law and enforce it. "Of the people. For all the people".

Harris announced her candidacy for president January 21. Kamala Harris (D-CA) will sit down with CNN's Jake Tapper in a town hall interview.

She is not just saying that dealing with private insurance is sometimes annoying, which most people would agree is true, and that this should be fixed. "You can be in favor of the Second Amendment and also understand that there is no reason in a civil society that we have assault weapons around communities that can kill babies and police officers", Harris said. We know it ended a little short for him.

Doctors and hospitals may face pay cuts, according to a 2017 analysis from The New York Times, since the government-sponsored program typically pays less for services than private companies.

For years, California - the nation's most populous state - voted near the end of the process, meaning nominees were often decided before a single Californian cast a vote.

Harris, a former prosecutor and California state attorney general, argued that solutions, such as an assault-weapons ban and universal-background-check legislation, have been devised and proven effective, but can not be implemented because her colleagues in Congress lack "the courage to act the right way".

One close ally, California congressman Ted Lieu, said: "She embraces the future, not the past, and is the person we need to move America forward".
