First term Senator Kamala Harris continues to be promoted by Democrats as a serious 2020 presidential candidate, more proof that California liberals have a stranglehold on the party.
Harris was the former Attorney General in the Golden State and has managed to shoot right to the top of the list largely because she is from a state dominated by far-left radicals which Hillary Clinton won by over 4 million votes.
The Democrat is now tapping into Hillary’s vast donor network, a sign that she is indeed a player.
She also is black and has a vagina, two of the most important characteristics for a party that has embraced identity politics as though it were a religion.

The Hill is reporting “Dem donors buzzing about Kamala Harris”:
The Democratic donor class is abuzz about Kamala Harris after the freshman California senator was feted this weekend at an event in the Hamptons surrounded by top fundraisers.
The Bridgehampton event, where Harris mingled with top donors and supporters of Hillary Clinton, was the ultimate signal that Harris is “thinking much bigger” than the Senate, one top bundler said.
“She’s running for president. Take it to the bank,” another fundraiser said. “She’s absolutely going to run.”
Donors say Harris is giving them a glimmer of hope when they need it the most.
They see the former prosecutor-turned-California attorney general as embodying the qualities a Democratic presidential candidate would need to win the White House in 2020.
They also see the 52-year-old African-American woman as a fresh face.
“There’s a big hunger out there for somebody new and different,” said Bill Carrick, a Democratic consultant who served as an adviser to former Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.), who challenged Harris in last year’s senatorial race.
“People are looking for champions. … She’s in that category. There are people who might not know her real well but want to like her. What little they know, they like.”
Since November, Harris has become one of her party’s biggest draws: She has raised upwards of $600,000 for Senate candidates in recent months, and she recently raised $227,000 in an email for MoveOn.Org, according to sources close to Harris.
Her fans see her as an antidote to Donald Trump and as a candidate who could feed off the so-called resistance to the Republican president.
“Kamala has come to embody what’s next for our party,” said Ben LaBolt, a Democratic strategist and former spokesman for former President Barack Obama.
There is, however, one big problem. These are the same donors who joined with Silicon Valley’s homosexual special interests to pump a billion dollars and change into Hillary’s campaign and she still lost.
Harris is such a divisive and polarizing figure that it’s almost like the Democrats are intentionally committing mass suicide by foisting her off on the American people as their candidate.
