“Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) dodged questions Tuesday about whether she’s weighing a presidential bid, saying that she doesn’t “‘even know what I’m having for dinner.'”
“She was asked by MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell if her decision to co-sponsor a single-payer health care bill led by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) signaled that she might mount a White House run of her own in 2020.
“‘The reason that I am supporting Medicare for all is really pretty basic, which is that it’s, I believe, the moral and ethical right thing to do,'” she said. “‘And to do otherwise means to have a system where we’re just not being smart.'”
“‘Well, I guess you’ll just continue to think about what you might do in 2020 and we can talk about it the next time,'” O’Donnell said.
“‘Lawrence, I don’t even know what I’m having for dinner,'” Harris replied, before bursting out into laughter.
“Harris, a former California attorney general who entered the Senate in January, has been among the lawmakers rumored to be potential contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.”
