Kamala Harris seeks campaign jolt in Iowa

During a five-day bus tour across Iowa last week, 2020 White House contender Kamala Harris finally seemed to hit her stride.

A Monmouth University poll released August 8 showed Harris third in the state, with 11% support, behind Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren.

Kamala Harris seeks campaign jolt in Iowa

Armed with fresh endorsements from two of the state's most sought after political influencers early on Saturday (August 10), Kamala Harris, the U.S. Senator from California met with people across the state - where the winner of Democratic caucuses has gone on to be the party's nominee for the last six election cycles.

Harris, 54, is among two dozen Democrats vying for the party nomination to take on Trump in the November 2020 election.

A Reuters/Ipsos poll taken August 1-5 showed that Joe Biden remained in first place with 22% support, relatively unchanged from the month before.

Harris was in fourth, dropping 4 points to 5.7% support over the same time period.

But in Iowa, there are signs that her campaign could be gaining traction.

A Monmouth University poll released August 8 showed Harris third in the state, with 11% support, behind Biden and Elizabeth Warren.

And on Saturday, her campaign announced major endorsements from Iowa power couple Sue and Bob Dvorsky, a former state party chairwoman and a former state senator, who supported former President Barack Obama in 2008 in his surprise upset over Hillary Clinton, then Clinton in 2016 when she eked out a win over Bernie Sanders.
