  • Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris of California continued
    to tease her potential 2020 US presidential run during an
    appearance on CBS’ “The Late Show” Thursday night, smiling and
    telling host Stephen Colbert two words:
    “I
    might.”
  • Harris’ response drew raucous cheers and applause from
    the audience. The former California attorney general, who has been
    promoting her book, has made waves lately, amid speculation she may
    seek the White House.
  • She is one of several prominent Democrats in a growing
    field of potential candidates vying to challenge President Donald
    Trump in the next election.

Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris of California continued to tease
her potential 2020 US presidential run during an appearance on CBS’
“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Thursday night, smiling and
telling Colbert two words: “I might.”

Colbert pointed to the striking clues about her potential
presidential bid, namely her media blitz and book tour after the
publication of her memoir: “The
Truths We Hold: An American Journey
.”

“Many people who put out books two years before a presidential
election do so to introduce themselves in a broad way to the
American people,” Colbert said. “Um, are you going to run for
president?”

The audience cheered and applauded loudly as Harris pondered her
answer.

Harris is one of several prominent Democrats in a growing field
of potential candidates vying to challenge President Donald Trump
in the next election. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts
announced her candidacy earlier in January, and former Housing and
Urban Development secretary Julián Castro has formed a
presidential exploratory committee.

Other potential candidates include Sen. Cory Booker of New
Jersey, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and Rep. Beto O’Rourke of
Texas.

Harris is currently serving her first term in the Senate,
similar to former President Barack Obama, who, as a first-term
senator, was initially criticized for his inexperience after he
announced his 2008 presidential campaign. Prior to her role in the
Senate, Harris was California’s attorney general and served as the
district attorney of San Francisco.

Harris, an Indian American, rose to prominence within the
Democratic Party after becoming an outspoken critic of Trump’s
immigration policies and political nominees, namely Justice Brett
Kavanaugh.

“When we talk about the immigration debate, there are powerful
forces — including this president — that are attempting to
vilify immigrants because they were born in another country,” she
said during a CNN interview on Wednesday. “This should offend all
of us.”
