For weeks, she’s been on a national tour promoting her memoir. This month, Politico reported that she shut down her state campaign committee and donated the rest of the money she raised for a California race, about million, to causes including the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights and a foundation that helps firefighters.
But only as of yesterday — not coincidentally, Martin Luther King’s Birthday — was it official: Senator Kamala Harris is running for president in 2020.
She announced her run on “Good Morning America,” not in her hometown, Oakland, as a local radio station’s sources had predicted earlier. She will, however, hold a rally there on Sunday.
“The core of my campaign is the people,” Ms. Harris said later in the day at Howard University, the historically black college she attended in the 1980s. “Nobody is living their life through the lens of one issue. And I think what people want is leadership that sees them through the complexity of their lives and pays equal attention to their needs. Let’s not put people in a box.”
Ms. Harris, who is just the second black woman to serve in the U.S. Senate, joins a diverse and increasingly crowded field of Democrats vying for the nomination.
(Here’s a succinct guide to everyone who’s announced their candidacy and everyone who’s likely to join the scrum.)
Observers say Ms. Harris, a 54-year-old former California attorney general, could bridge generations of the party, both in terms of her age and experience and her positions.
While she’s firmly a product of what she once described as San Francisco’s “hard-knocks politics,” Ms. Harris has also tried to align herself with Democrats’ leftward drift. After initially hesitating, she disavowed most corporate donations.
Still, experts have suggested that her toughest criticism will stem from her time as San Francisco’s district attorney and the state’s attorney general.
Already, in a stinging Op-Ed piece, a law professor wrote that Ms. Harris wasn’t the progressive prosecutor she claims she was. That prompted a response from a supporter and civil rights advocate who described Ms. Harris as a “voice for the voiceless and vulnerable,” when she was a prosecutor.
In any case, experts think she’ll try to turn that vulnerability on its head, Politico reported, by presenting her law enforcement background as a foil to a “lawless” presidency.

This morning, Tracee Ellis Ross and Kumail Nanjiani announced this year’s Oscar nominations. Our Carpetbagger columnist, Kyle Buchanan, wrote earlier about what to expect. Check back here for updates throughout the day.
Jill Cowan: Is there any possibility the Oscars producers will try to do something splashy and unveil a surprise host between now and the ceremony? You wrote about why the ceremony could be better off without one.
Kyle Buchanan: I’m doubtful we’ll get a full-blown host, but I think the Academy is searching for big-name presenters who may get expanded duties — more than just reading light patter and standing to the side. I’d expect producers to announce those names once they’re locked in, since without a host out there giving interviews, the Oscars will need somebody to promote. Then again, the Academy has fumbled more than a few of their announcements over the past year, so maybe they’ll just keep mum and we’ll tune in with no idea what to expect.
Is there a way you’ll be gauging whether the Academy has been responsive to #OscarsSoWhite criticism?
I think the #OscarsSoWhite conversation continues to be had in every part of the industry, not just the awards sector. Last year had some amazing movies directed by and starring people of color — among them, “Black Panther,” “If Beale Street Could Talk,” “Crazy Rich Asians,” “Widows” and “BlacKkKlansman” — and while not all of them found favor with Oscar, I think all the talk we’ve been having about representation has had a profound effect on what gets greenlit in Hollywood. And hopefully, with movies like “Black Panther” and “Crazy Rich Asians” having done so phenomenally well at the box office, Hollywood has an incentive to keep backing projects like this.
And last one, just to ask: Your Best Picture winner prediction? You wrote about whether “Roma” can win, but it definitely has some obstacles.
This has got to be one of the most wide-open Best Picture fields I can remember. “A Star Is Born” was nominated by every guild, and is the sort of film Oscar voters usually go for — a critically acclaimed hit that’s about the entertainment business — though it hasn’t been able to take home a big prize yet. “Roma” is the critics’ favorite and Netflix is spending through the nose, but a foreign-language film has never won Best Picture, let alone a black-and-white one distributed by a streaming service. And then there’s “Green Book,” which recently took the top prize from the Producers Guild of America, the group that has the most sterling record for presaging the ultimate Best Picture winner.
