Harris Kicks Off 2020 Campaign With Oakland Rally

Sen. Kamala Harris kicked off her presidential campaign with a rally in her hometown Sunday, portraying herself as a leader for Progressive values who can defeat President Trump.

“We are at an inflection point in the history of our nation,” Harris told a cheering crowd estimated at more than 20,000 people at Frank Ogawa Plaza in downtown Oakland. “We are here because the American Dream and our American democracy are under attack and on the line like never before.

“These are not ordinary times, and this will not be an ordinary election,” Harris added.
