Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (D.) said California Sen. Kamala Harris (D.) will be "knocking on doors in Iowa," indicating Saturday he expects she will run for president.
Villaraigosa, who is running for Governor of California in 2018, was asked by MSNBC host Hugh Hewitt about Harris, a newly elected senator considered a rising star in the Democratic Party. Hewitt predicted she would be the nominee for the Democrats in 2020.
"Has she got a stake in this governor's race?" Hewitt asked.
"Well, not yet," Villaraigosa said. "I hope she will support my candidacy, but as you say, she is a great candidate. She's going to be knocking on doors in Iowa, I expect. But in any case, I'm focused on this race, not the presidential race."
Iowa refers to the Iowa caucuses, the first major nominating event in presidential election cycles. Barack Obama scored a shocking victory in Iowa in 2008 en route to his successful run for the Democratic nomination and eventually the presidency.
Harris met last month with some of Hillary Clinton's largest donors in the Hamptons, and one fundraiser said anonymously she is planning to run.
"She's running for president. Take it to the bank," one fundraiser said in July. "She's absolutely going to run."

Did ex-Mayor Antonio ever pass his Bar Exam??
Both parents foreigners so no.
Let’s see...she’s got female parts...they’re the right color...what’s not to like?
Other than she may possibly be as dumb as Maxine Waters.
How are they going to hide her leftist history like they did Obama’s?
As a California politician, her leftist history is there for all to see.
I have already seen one article that referred to her as a centrist. The whitewashing begins.
Intruder alert! Can you say willie brown?
Yeah, a centrist. Like equating Jhenghis Kahn to Mother Teresa.
Will she be telling the white people in Iowa that they are racist and Nazis
Give her some mail to deliver at the same time to make her useful.
If Kamala gets close to being nominated to run for president, or actually does get the nomination, it would not surprise me to see Willie Brown emerge with commentary that may sabotage her chances of winning.
Many very successful men do not want their ‘legacy’ eclipsed by someone they consider to be a protege. Some are fine with it, but others retain a core of insecurity and a brittle ego. The latest example may have been the way Bill Clinton seemed to be trying to undermine Hillary’s chances to win last year. Willie Brown may still value his title as ‘the first black Californian to do x, y and z long ago.
Villaraigosa, who is running for Governor of California in 2018,
Maybe Kamala can regale the nice white people in Pella about the time she cut loose the woman who threw her four boys off the pier on the Embarcadero and watched them drown.
I thought California was leaving the union, just think if they do; no more Waters, no more Pelosi no more Feinstein, and no more Harris, just to name a few parasites
Arrogant black female another progressive “America needs” narrative.
“considered a rising star in the Democratic Party”
More like a rising RED star.
I’m sure they’ll be very polite to her.
Hahahahaha. I doubt if she could handle doing actual work. My pit bull may like her though. :)
