Appearing on Good Morning America this morning (January 21), the Senator from California says she will seek the Democratic nomination for President.
“I’m running for President of the United States and I’m very excited about it,” Harris told hosts George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts.
At the same time as her announcement, she posted a video on her website titled “For The People” in which she lays out the platform she plans to run on.
“Truth. Justice. Decency. Equality. Freedom. Democracy. These aren’t just words. They’re the values we as Americans cherish. And they’re all on the line now,” she says in the video teaser. “The future of our country depends on you and millions of others lifting our voices to fight for our American values. That’s why I’m running for President of the United States.”
