Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) says she will determine “over the holiday” whether to seek the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.

“It will ultimately be a family decision,” she told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski at the “Know Your Value” event in San Francisco on Saturday.

“And over the holiday, I will make that decision with my family.” 

Harris also said that the 2020 campaign is “going to be ugly.”

“When you break things, it is painful,” she said. “And you get cut. And you bleed.”

{mosads}Harris is viewed as a likely presidential candidate in 2020, along with Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Other potential candidates include former Vice President Joe Biden, Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas), Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. 

Harris in October campaigned for Democratic candidates in South Carolina, which will be one of the first states to hold its primary election in 2020.
