Will she or won’t she run for president? Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) has been asked that question multiples times this week as she promotes her book The Truths We Hold: An American Journey. Each time she has said she wasn’t ready to make an announcement, but now KCBS radio is reporting she is about to make it official:
Sen. Kamala Harris has decided to run for president in 2020 and will announce her candidacy on or around Martin Luther King Jr. Day, probably at a campaign rally in Oakland, sources close to the freshman senator from California tell KCBS Radio.
The story goes on to say:
Several sources knowledgeable about her plans say she is ready, and has in fact decided to run, with the enthusiastic blessing of her husband and two stepchildren.
Not one but TWO Springsteen songs on the playlist before Kamala Harris event at GWU.
Folks… she's running.

And she sure sounded like a candidate when she talked to CNN’s Jake Tapper Wednesday afternoon.
