Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has been openly flirting with a 2020 presidential bid for some time, and has done little to combat rumors that she’s planning to toss her hat in the ring.

With the release of her memoir and a schedule jam-packed with media appearances over the coming weeks, the subtlety is wearing thin. During an interview on “The View” Tuesday, Harris duped the show’s co-hosts into thinking she was about to announce her 2020 bid on their show.

“I am pleased to announce on ‘The View’ — that I’m not ready to make my announcement yet,” she said.
