Kamala Harris has joined the 2020 Goat Rodeo!

Anyway, this makes three women — Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York — the first declared presidential candidates in the Senate. The Pink Wave is continuing!
The announcement — the confirmation of what’s been hinted at now for months — came in two steps: an appearance on national television and the release of an online video.
“The future of our country depends on you and millions of others raising their voices to fight for our American values,” Harris said in the video. “That’s why I’m running for president of the United States. To lift those voices. To bring our voices together.”
Harris becomes the fourth woman in Congress to vie for the chance to challenge President Trump in 2020 and will no doubt lean on her law and order background as well as her reputation for being a sharp critic of the administration on Capitol Hill.
She is the most high-profile California elected official to launch a White House bid since former Gov. Pete Wilson in 1996.
