Kamala Harris books first trip to Iowa

Kamala Harris has booked her first 2020 ticket to Iowa.

The freshman senator will travel for the first time this year to the first-in-the-nation caucus state on Oct. 22-23, as she prepares for a potential presidential run.

Harris, a California Democrat, will make appearances in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, with other stops expected to be added. The trip will follow a visit to South Carolina, another early primary state, on Oct. 19, and to battleground state Wisconsin on Oct. 21.

Following the visits to Iowa and South Carolina, Harris will have appeared in three of four early primary states this election cycle. She has yet to campaign in New Hampshire.

First elected in 2016, Harris has helped raise or donated more than $6.5 million for Democratic candidates and causes across the country this year. She said recently that she will “seriously take a look at” 2020 after the midterms.

Harris will be joining a stream of likely 2020 presidential candidates into Iowa. She campaigned in the state for then-Sen. Barack Obama during his 2008 presidential primary campaign.
