Harris emerges as frontrunner to oust Trump as rivals circle

Harris emerges as frontrunner to oust Trump as rivals circle

When questions began to swirl over her impartiality, Harris has become keen to distance herself from the former mayor. That contrasts with the approach of other declared Democratic candidates, including Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA, who held roughly half a dozen events over three days during her first visit after announcing a likely presidential bid.

Green (R), who is also a physician and served as a special operations flight surgeon in the Army, said that Harris' plan takes away choice from the middle class.

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. With Harris claiming 27 percent of the vote, the poll showed support for the Democrat almost doubling since a similar January 8 survey. Overall, 57 percent of adults say the rules should be tighter. "This has become a political issue, and it is - there is no reason why we can not have reasonable gun-safety laws in this country", she added. She was the first woman elected district attorney in California, as well as the first black woman and first Asian-American to hold that job.

Dr. Ramin Oskoui, a leading cardiologist in the Washington, D.C., area, told Ingraham that the United States' health care system would collapse if Harris had her way with Medicare for All.

"I respect the Democratic Party", he said. "I was born knowing what they are". "The people who vote, the people who live in this country in this country are smarter than that". She officially entered the race on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The first thing that should be clear to conservatives is that Harris is an extreme leftist. A week later, she ceremonially kicked off her presidential campaign with a speech that focused on racism and police brutality. The state is fourth in line on primary and caucus calendar after Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada.

34 measles cases in Washington outbreak
The disease was considered eradicated in the United States, but has been spiking in the Pacific northwest. Measles is a highly contagious viral illness spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Throughout the event, several commentators took note of how many people were present at the Democratic senator's campaign launch, cheering her on.

Her platform will include progressive policies including debt-free college and "Medicare for all" - allowing Americans to opt into government-run health coverage.

Kamala Harris had some "very harsh" words for members of Congress who, she said, had "failed to act" again and again on gun control. That's why Democrats are panicking over the possibility of a third party candidate like Howard Schultz, former Starbucks CEO, who could siphon off many anti-Trump votes by not running as a complete loony.

After the rally, Harris planned to her first trip to Iowa as a presidential candidate.

Hickenlooper's record on energy issues and climate change could put him at odds with the Democratic base that dominates the nomination process.
