I wonder if she'll invite the Knights of Columbus.
She'll announce her candidacy on or around Martin Luther King Day, probably at a campaign rally in Oakland, the sources said.
Sources close to Sen.
Harris, 54, has recently been making the rounds on talk shows and events to promote her new book.
But several sources with knowledge of her plans said she has in fact chose to run, with the enthusiastic blessing of her husband and two stepchildren.
Harris, who is of mixed African American and Indian American heritage, had indicated earlier she would decide about the run during the past holidays.
Harris started off by saying that it was a "very painful experience" for her as she suggested that she didn't know about it due to the fact that her office employed a large number of people. Her advisors want to avoid any connection to San Francisco ...
KCBS reported that the Harris campaign team wants a moment similar to Barack Obama's 2007 announcement at the Old State Capitol in IL. "Don't drag this out", said Democratic strategist Darry Sragow. "America has a deep and dark history of people using the power of the prosecutor as an instrument of injustice", she writes.
"(Trump) is choking the very people who are responsible for making sure we have public safety on a day-to-day basis", she said, referring to the thousands of unpaid workers, including members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Transportation Security Administration and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
In Baca, Harris' office only withdrew its opposition after an embarrassing (and filmed) hearing before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, where a panel of three Ninth Circuit judges pointedly asked why such prosecutors weren't being charged with perjury and threatened to release an opinion naming names if Harris' office continued in its folly.
That leaves Oakland, where Harris was born, and where she returned after law school to become a deputy district attorney for Alameda County.
The former California attorney general also expressed regret that she was not informed by her staff that her former top aide in that previous office was accused of gender harassment, a lawsuit that the attorney general's office settled for almost $400,000 after she had moved on to the US Senate.
"Despite a woman's role in the world, there are still certain myths of what a woman can and cannot do, Harris said, citing her mother".
