Vocal anti-Trump Senator Kamala Harris announced her 2020 Presidential bid, Monday. The Senator is already a top favorite to win the Democratic nomination.

Harris paired the announcement with the release of a campaign video on Twitter in which she said, “Truth. Justice. Decency. Equality. Freedom. Democracy. These aren’t just words. They’re the values we as Americans cherish. And they’re all on the line now.”
“The future of our country depends on you and millions of others lifting our voices to fight for our American values,” Harris said. “That’s why I’m running for president of the United States.”
The former California attorney general was elected to the Senate in 2016. Since then, she has worked to establish a national profile — by aggressively questioning President Trump’s judicial nominees, writing a book and stumping for Democrats in last year’s midterm elections.
Her announcement comes as some Democrats, emboldened with their new majority in the House, have suggested impeaching the president. Asked on ABC on Monday if she believes Trump has committed an impeachable offense, Harris wouldn’t say, but said it’s important that Special Counsel Robert Mueller continue his investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians in the 2016 race.
