CBS News reports:
Sen. Kamala Harris has decided to seek the 2020 Democratic nomination for president, sources close to her told KCBS Radio. She’ll announce her candidacy on Martin Luther King Day, probably at a campaign rally in Oakland, the sources said.
Harris, 54, has been making the rounds of television talk shows and appearing at several events this week as part of a brief tour to promote her new book, “The Truths We Hold: An American Journey.”
At every stop, when asked about running for president, Harris has answered with some variation of “I’m not ready yet” to announce her decision and cited family considerations. But several sources say she has in fact decided to run, with the enthusiastic blessing of her husband and two stepchildren.
