Kamala Harris is at 19 cents on Predictit in the 2020 Democratic nominee contest. Beto has slipped to second place at 18 cents. He’s been making a fool of himself. Harris has kept quiet, which avoids making mistakes.
Such a small move up, so unsure a status and so early in the process, one may wonder why to mention it. It’s because Harris has a number of things going for her within Democratic circles. She’s female. Her mother is Tamil Indian, her father Jamaican. She’s a senator from California. Before that she was in law enforcement as Attorney General and District Attorney. Her positions are progressive and socialist; they’ll satisfy Democrats.
Unless Harris blunders, she stands a good chance of securing the nomination. This is why she has consistently been placing second in the Predictit race right behind Beto and now leads.9:41 am on January 17, 2019 Email Michael S. Rozeff
