Kamala Harris threw her hat into what’s already expected to be a crowded field of Democrats running for president. But some strategists say Harris’ diverse background and name recognition could be an advantage for her. “Look, there could be 25 people who look to run. There’s no one who could say, ‘I know exactly how to do it because I’ve done it before,’ because we have never seen this before with a very crowded field,” Democratic political strategist Andrew Acosta said. Acosta says Harris has a good shot going into this primary season. He says as the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India, Harris brings diversity and experience. “Obviously she’s going to oppose Trump, we saw that in the Kavanaugh hearings. She’s going to ask tough questions. But she’s a prosecutor and she’s smart. She’s not just going to throw bombs,” Acosta said. The 54-year-old is a former prosecutor and California Attorney General — a past that Cal Matters columnist Dan Walters says could both hurt and help her chances. “Some of her rivals are already taking little shots at her being a prosecutor and so forth, and too close to the cops. On the other hand, if she were to be the nominee, being a prosecutor probably wouldn’t hurt her,” he said. “You get into some of those swing states like Florida and Ohio and what not that would commend her, somewhat.” With such a large field of candidates, Walters says it’s hard to predict whose message will resonate with the country. He says Harris’ challenge will be finding a way to stand out. “She’s not the only woman, she’s not the only person of color. She’s not alone in any of those regards, so she doesn’t have that kind of singular quality where she becomes a phenomenon. It’s like going into the Super Bowl. You pay your money, you get in the game and you hope you win,” Walters told FOX40. Strategists also point out that so much could happen between now and 2020, so it’s really hard to say who’ll come out on toe.
