Indian American woman Presidential candidate for 2020
Even before the mid-term election delivered its blow to the Republican Party and President Donald Trump, speculation was rife as to who might emerge amongst the top contenders for a 2020 presidential bid.Indian American Sen. Kamala Harris, D-California, has widely hinted at her intentions, as has Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, a Hindu American with a wide network of Indian American supporters. Political pundits have speculated that former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley, a Republican, might be her party`s best shot at wresting the White House away from the embattled President Donald Trump. Shekar Narasimhan, chairman and founder of the AAPI Victory Fund, suggested to India-West that it was too early to start focusing on potential candidates, noting there may be as many as 50 candidates who will announce their intentions to run. Other political pundits believe more than 500 candidates will emerge from both parties.At the “Know Your Value” women`s conference Dec. 1 in San Francisco, Calif., Harris onstage told “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzenzski that she would mull a presidential bid with her family over the winter holiday season.
