"They're the values we as Americans cherish, and they're all on the line now", Senator Harris said in the video. "This is a moment in time that I feel a sense of responsibility to stand up and fight for the best of who we are", said Harris.

Merle Ibelings, a student at Westmount High, says she is excited and inspired to see an alumnus of her school in the running for the US presidency. "That's why I'm running for president of the United States".

She joins Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and former housing secretary Julian Castro, among others, in vying for the 2020 Democratic nomination. Her slogan will be "For the People", Reuters reported.

Kamala Harris is throwing her hat into the Democratic primary for president, bypassing the formal exploratory stage and going all-in.

While the skills she honed in the courtroom have served her well in the Senate-and helped to elevate her to the forefront of the anti-Trump resistance movement-progressives have lingering and serious questions about her career as California's "top cop".
