Rep. Ted Lieu Endorses Kamala Harris For President

Morgan, a longtime Democratic fundraiser who considered a run for governor himself before becoming an independent, said that the origins of his firm's famous phrase is simple: "I stole it from Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence".

U.S. Senator Kamala Harris waves to supporters during her presidential campaign launch rally in Frank H. Ogawa Plaza in Oakland, California, on January 27. Kamala Harris, standing outside of Oakland's city hall, formally kicked off her campaign for the White House by presenting herself as the leader who can best unite an America that is at an "inflection point" and facing a critical question.

"When you were [California's] attorney general, you opposed legislation that would have required your office to investigate fatal shootings involving police officers". "For all our differences, for all the battles, for all the fights, we are still one American family", she writes, "and we should act like it".

Harris allegedly had an extramarital affair with San Francisco's former mayor - Willie Brown - over 20-years ago.

"Fighting for the people meant fighting on behalf of survivors of sexual assault", Harris said, in one of multiple references to the #MeToo movement in her speech, "a fight not just against predators but a fight against silence and stigma".

Brown, 84, supported Harris in her successful 2003 run for San Francisco district attorney, noting: "Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was [California] Assembly speaker". Critics have jumped on this past as the easiest target to draw scrutiny toward the candidate, but Harris' slogan and speech made clear she sees her prosecutor background as a strength. This is something Harris seemed to use to her advantage. Both women are attempting to become the first female president after Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump in 2016.

During the event, Harris vowed to fight "for the people" and criticized Trump for dividing the country.

"To be sure we've won and we've lost, but we've never stopped fighting", she said.

"In this moment, we must all speak truth about what's happening", she affirmed.

Harris added, "So today I say to you, my friends: These are not ordinary times, and this will not be an ordinary election, but this is our America".

Her town hall will be live from Iowa.

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

Harris has faced recent controversy over the revelation that she was unaware that one of her top aides, when she was Attorney General of California, settled a workplace harassment lawsuit. I was born knowing what they are.
