Kamala Harris Is Pleased To Announce … She’s Not Ready To Announce 2020 Plans

Kamala Harris on The View Jan. 8, 2019.

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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
