Sen. Kamala Harris will make a trip to South Carolina next week, campaigning for the first time in the early primary state amid rumors of a 2020 presidential run, reports Politico.
According to an advisor, Harris will be looking to appeal to South Carolina Democrats in Columbia and Greenville, with a likely fundraiser and public events for the state party and candidates.
Harris appeared in Ohio this past weekend and is expected to make a trip to Iowa later this month as well. The California Democrat, of Indian and Jamaican descent, has not confirmed whether she will run for president in 2020 but said she is “not ruling it out.”
Harris has helped raise/donated more than $6.5 million for Democratic candidates and causes so far this year.
She said she will “seriously take a look at” 2020 after November elections.
“I haven’t been thinking of it that way,” Harris said, when asked whether her campaign schedule could put her behind 2020 presidential potentials who have already visited Iowa.
According to The State, Harris is the latest of a multitude of Democrats visiting South Carolina ahead of the contest for the party’s presidential nomination in 2020. The southern state will hold a key early primary that will help decide the nominee.
