Harris was born in 1964 in the city of Oakland.She ranked third in a new, 35,000-vote straw poll of the Daily Kos community, a rough proxy for the Democratic activist base.
She has predesigned approach to follow for Democratical presidential primaries like of Obama.The South Carolina electorate seems ready-made for Harris as, historically, African-American voters cast more than half of all votes in Democratic presidential primaries in the state. Then-Sen. Barack Obama scored a crushing victory over Hillary Clinton in South Carolina in 2008, a win that gave his candidacy a jolt of momentum heading into a series of caucuses in February 2008 that gave him a delegate lead he never relinquished.
Obama’s path is instructive to Harris — and not just because of their race. Obama won the Iowa caucuses on January 3, which allowed him to weather a surprising defeat in the New Hampshire primary on January 8 and make it with some momentum left to the South Carolina primary on January 26.
