The 2020 presidential race is right around the corner, with analysts predicting as many as 40 Democrat candidates may launch campaign bids against President Donald Trump for the White House. Kamala Harris, a first-term senator and former California attorney general known for her rigorous questioning of President Donald Trump’s nominees, has become the
latest candidate to enter the Democratic presidential race.
Securing the nomination would make Harris the first African American or Indian American woman to be a major party nominee for the presidency. The 2020 Democratic presidential primary will be the first time more than one woman competes for the party’s nomination.
Harris and other Democrats will have to navigate the party’s debate about whether an establishment figure who can appeal to centrist voters or a fresh face who can energize its increasingly diverse and progressive
base offers the best chance to beat Trump in 2020.
