Outspoken Senator and potential 2020 challenger Kamala Harris hit the campaign trail in Iowa this week; slamming her Republican colleagues and sparking speculation surrounding her potential run for the White House.
Harris was speaking to hundreds of supporters inside a packed community college in Des Moines when she unloaded on President Trump and the GOP; saying “We need to have a better vision for this country.”
“This is the moment in time that is requiring us to fight for the best of who we are,” Harris said Monday. “And the stakes are high. I don’t have to tell you what’s happening here in Iowa, where they’re privatizing Medicare, where we know that just in a very short period of time, people’s premiums are going to go up at least threefold.”
“We are better than this,” she added.
Harris’ visit comes months after fellow Democratic Senator and presidential hopeful Cory Booker visited Iowa.
“She’s got ground to make up, but she’s not very far behind yet,” said a member of the Iowa Democratic National Committee.

The left-wing lawmaker’s comments echo those of Senators Schumer and Feinstein; who have vowed to fight Kavanaugh’s nomination despite the FBI finding “no corroborating evidence” of sexual misconduct in the early 1980s.
