Sen. Kamala Harris is wasting no time on her presidential campaign and is already planning to go on the road to visit early-voting states.
Her schedule was announced Tuesday and includes two days each in South Carolina, New Hampshire, Iowa, and Nevada. Those will be key states Harris needs to woo to secure support for the 2020 elections.
The California senator will first visit New Hampshire before forwarding to Nevada. She will also be returning to Iowa and South Carolina, which she visited after launching her bid.
The dates of her early-states tour are: South Carolina, Feb. 15-16; New Hampshire, Feb. 18-19; Iowa, Feb. 23-24; and Nevada, Feb. 28-March 1.
Harris, 54, announced her candidacy Jan. 21 on Marthin Luther King Dy, during an appearance on Good Morning America. She also appeared official kickoff rally Jan. 27 with ground-breaking numbers.
“We are here because the American Dream and our American democracy are under attack and on the line like never before. And we are here at this moment in time because we must answer a fundamental question: Who are we? Who are we as Americans? So, let’s answer that question to the world and each other right here and right now. America, we are better than this," she told the crowds in Oakland, CA.
Deidre DeJear has been named as her campaign chair in Iowa and Will Dubbs as Iowa state director. In New Hampshire Craig Brown will be her campaign’s state director.
