Should Kamala Harris Run for President in 2020? Female Politicians Think So

Should Kamala Harris Run for President in 2020? Female Politicians Think So

While it has been less than one month since election 2016, U.S. citizens and politicians are eager to predict who will be running in 2020.

Among the most popular predictions is Michelle Obama, despite her statement that she will never run for president.

The most recent female candidate prediction? History maker Kamala Harris.

On election day, Harris became the first African-American California senator, having previously made history in 2010 as the first female, African American, and Indian American attorney general of California.

The Harris 2020 prediction was made by Katie Jacobs Stanton, Juleanna Glover, and Anna Palmer — three powerful women in politics — at the 2016 Fortune Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit on Tuesday.

"A lot of people think Senator-elect Harris is right in line to run for president as soon as she possibly can," Glover said at the summit.

But, while a lot can happen between now and then, MAKER Kirsten Gillibrand, Democratic Senator of New York, also had her name tossed around as a potential front-runner in the 2020 presidential race.

Here's hoping more powerful women in politics will run. Could 2020 be your year?
