(CBS NEWS) – California Sen. Kamala Harris is throwing her hat into the Democratic primary for president, bypassing the formal exploratory stage and going all-in.
Harris made it official Monday with a social media video that also introduced her campaign slogan: “For the people.”
“I’m running for president,” she said in a twitter post. “Let’s do this together.”
Harris is the third U.S. senator and the fourth woman to join the 2020 fray.
She is also the first African-American candidate to enter the race, and her campaign rollout speaks to that significance: Her announcement comes on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and her campaign logo was inspired by Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman to run for president nearly five decades ago.
