Kamala Harris Just Won a Major 2020 Victory

With California moving its presidential primary to Super Tuesday, did Sen. Harris just become the 2020 frontrunner?

Kamala Harris 2020

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), a possible Democratic candidate for president in 2020, scored a huge victory on Wednesday, 1,132 days out from Election Day.

California Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation to move California’s 2020 presidential primary to the first Tuesday after the first Monday in March. This means California and its 551 delegates will be up for grabs on ‘Super Tuesday’ in 2020.

Super Tuesday usually features several primaries across the nation and often determines the Republican and Democratic nominees for president.

In 2016, Harris won California’s Senate race with over 60% of the vote.

With 11 different media markets in the state, running a competitive primary race against Harris, who already has a statewide political operation, would be extremely expensive and difficult.

Winning California doesn’t ensure that Harris will be the Democratic nominee for president, but winning a majority of its 551 delegates would make Harris difficult to defeat.
