A suburban Montreal high school is leading the cheers north of the border for graduate Kamala Harris, the California senator and former prosecutor who confirmed Monday she's seeking to become the first black woman elected president of the United States.
Last week, a widely-circulated New York Times op-ed written by Lara Bazelon, a law professor and the former director of the Loyola Law School Project for the Innocent in Los Angeles, argued that Harris can not be considered a "progressive prosecutor" given her record as attorney general in California.
"The American people deserve to have somebody who is going to fight for them, who is going to see them, who will hear them, who will care about them, who will be concerned about their experience and will put them in front of self-interest", Harris said as she made her announcement on ABC's "Good Morning America". "For ourselves, for our children, and for our country", Harris declares in a campaign video shared on social media and posted to her campaign website at KamalaHarris.org.
"Right now we have an administration that has waged a full-on assault against American institutions and American ideals", she said during an appearance on ABC's "Good Morning America". "I'm running to lift those voices, to bring our voices together".
"I was the attorney general of California for two terms and I had a host of clients that I was obligated to defend and represent", Harris said at a press conference on Monday at her alma mater Howard University, Vox reported. "But our strength is that we fight to reach those ideals", she said. "And consider the left's attitude toward Robert Mueller, who has used hardball prosecutorial tactics to secure criminal convictions against Mike Flynn, Paul Manafort and other associates of President Trump". Harris becomes the fourth woman now serving in Congress to announce her presidential ambitions.
"I remain optimistic", she said. "Women are scaring the crap out of the men because they'll need to beat up the women or other men to climb over the huge field, and in the era of 'me too, ' that is bad news". Among those expected to join the race are senators Cory Booker, Sherrod Brown and Amy Klobuchar.
Police to investigate Duke's crash
Asked if the duke had then thanked him for getting him out of the auto , Mr Warne said: "No, but he wasn't being discourteous". The Prince retired from official royal duties in August 2017, after completing 22,219 solo engagements since 1952.
She is the fifth Democrat to enter what is shaping up to be a crowded battle for the nomination to challenge Trump, the likely Republican candidate. Day, Harris' campaign says that is meant to highlight "a reminder of the aspirational fight for progress that marked Harris' upbringing and that guides her today". He didn't last the primaries, which were won by President Donald Trump.
She subtly shaded President Donald Trump, without mentioning him by name, for pushing away American allies and damaging the United States' "moral authority" in the world.
Her signs will carry her campaign theme "Kamala Harris for the people", the words that she spoke each time she rose in the courtroom as a prosecutor.
In the memoir, Harris described herself as a "progressive prosecutor" and said it's a "false choice" to decide between supporting the police and advocating for greater scrutiny of law enforcement. And early voting in Harris's home state of California will overlap with the traditional early nominating contests, which could give Harris a boost.
