Harris on O'Rourke Candidacy: The More the Merrier

 

By    |   Thursday, 14 March 2019 03:05 PM EDT

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., a Democratic candidate for president, welcomed former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas into the race on Thursday.

Her comments came during an interview with correspondent Peter Alexander on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports.”  Responding to a question on whether she sees O’Rourke as her main competitor, Harris said: “Oh, I think the voters will decide, but I mean as far as I’m concerned Peter, the more the merrier.  It’ll be a good race.”

And she added: “I probably have not studied him as much as you have but I will tell you that I think we have an embarrassment of riches among the Democrats who are running.  We have incredible public servants who are smart, whose voices are important and I think it’s going to be robust and a very healthy process and I’m looking forward to it.”

O’Rourke formally announced Thursday that he will seek the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
