Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) will be campaigning in Iowa for the very first time later in the month, increasing the speculation that she might be preparing for a 2020 presidential run, say multiple reports.
The Democrat will campaign on October 22-23 in Des Moines as well as Cedar Rapids in the crucial first-in-the-country caucus state, Politico reported.
Senator Harris’s trip will happen after her visit in South Carolina, which is an early-voting state as well as the first Southern state to have a primary during the presidential primary season.
Harris has fundraised over $5 million this year for Democratic candidates and she said recently that she will “take a look” at a 2020 presidential run after November’s midterm elections.
Other potential 2020 contenders are also making their way to Iowa.
Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.) went to Iowa last week, going to a number of events in order to campaign for candidates in the 2018 midterms. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will visit Iowa later in October as he campaigns for the Democratic candidates as well.
