Is This Democrat Running in 2020?

The 2020 field for Democrats is expected to be abundant with candidates. Elizabeth Warren has already thrown her hat in the ring, but it looks like she’ll have another challenger. The Free Beacon reports:

Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) took aim at President Donald Trump, calling him “gutless” during the first event of her book tour, which will lead right into her announcement later this month that she will run to unseat him in 2020.

It wasn’t until the second half of Harris’s conversation with Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post that Trump entered the conversation. But asked toward the end of the event how her “gut instincts” differ from the president’s, she questioned whether he has a “gut.”

“I would actually say that that assumes facts, not evidence that he has a gut,” Harris said. “I think there’s a thing about leadership, which is that you have to have the courage to do things in the best interest of the people you lead even if it’s not in your personal best interest.”

“You can’t be gutless when it comes to making those decisions, you have to put the needs of the people before your personal needs,” she said.

It remains to be seen if Harris would herself believe that anything she disagrees with could still be in the nation’s best interest.
