Sen. Kamala Harris has picked Baltimore for her campaign headquarters if she does decide to run for president in 2020, according to the Baltimore Sun.
The senator from California has yet to officially announce that she will be running for the nation’s top political office, though she has hinted at her interest in running in recent months.

“Harris picked Baltimore because of its diversity, its proximity to Washington and because it is in the Eastern time zone, said the sources, who requested anonymity because Harris has not yet announced her plans,” the Sun reports.
Harris’ first- ever book “The Truths We Hold: An American Journey,” which chronicles the “core truths” of American life, was released earlier this month.

Books have been a longtime path for any ambitious politician trying to develop a national profile in preparation for public office — specifically the presidency. Former President Barack Obama’s “The Audacity of Hope” is a prime example.
Harris was elected to the Senate in 2016, and she has been an important and powerful voice for women and people of color since she began her term.
