Rep. Ted Lieu Endorses Kamala Harris For President

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is "running to finish what" former President Barack Obama started in her 2020 presidential bid by pledging the "fantasy" of free Medicare for All, Fox News host Laura Ingraham warned Monday night on "The Ingraham Angle".

Her town hall will be live from Iowa. Campaign aides say she has drawn inspiration from Shirley Chisholm, a NY congresswoman who in 1972 became the first black woman to run for president from a major party. "I'm running to be president of the people, by the people, and for all people".

President Trump has induced a fever on the left, pushing the Democrats ever further toward the socialist dystopia.

Harris, whose father is from Jamaica and whose mother is Indian, said that "in the face of powerful forces trying to sow hate and division among us, the truth is that as Americans, we have so much more in common than what separates us". These polls do not mean that Trump will lose the 2020 election. She was animated as she answered questions about gun violence, health care, climate change and other issues. America, we are better than this. If she ultimately wins the White House she would be the first African-American woman and first person of Asian descent to be president. "That is not our America".

Sens. Elizabeth Warren of MA and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY have announced exploratory committees.

Heavyweights Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker and Beto O'Rourke are also reportedly weighing up a run, with the field expected to eventually include around a dozen candidates. "He was aspirational like our country is aspirational", she said of the civil rights leader. In her speech, Harris leveraged her work as a prosecutor to present herself as a fierce champion for the people, telling the Oakland crowd how she created skill and job training programs instead of prison time for young people facing drug charges.

On gun violence, Harris said Congress has failed to lead.

Justin Rose holds on to three-shot lead
Leader Rose ran in a series of mid-length putts, few better than a 20-footer from the fringe for eagle at the par-five ninth. Woods birdied his last two holes for a 31 on the front nine of the South Course and finished at 10-under par.

"For every one dollar increase in taxes, we're talking about more savings through getting rid of premiums, copays, and deductibles".

"Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago", he wrote.

"You can have Medicare for All for people that are uncovered, because that's a smaller group", said Bloomberg incongruously.

California Republicans also took aim at Harris over the comments. Harris represents the kind some argue could have a greater appeal to the progressive base as well as an increasingly diverse nation, while a more centrist, traditional one like Hickenlooper might sell better in Midwest states that drifted from the party in 2016.

"That's not correct. That's not American", Schultz said in an interview with CBS News' "This Morning", adding "What's next?" Law professor Lara Bazleoni in a New York Times op-ed last week cited occasions on which Ms Harris backed contentious policies, and some on social media shared photos of her posing with immigration agents, along with the hashtag #NeverKamala. "And that's what she did".

Well, you just played Senator Harris as saying she wants to abolish the insurance industry. Lord knows, I am not ideal.

"I respect the Democratic Party", he said. "Here's the reality of it also: we're not waiting for a good idea".
