Baltimore, though a long way from Harris’s home state, comes with some advantages for the potential candidate. The city is close to the senator’s office in Washington and has a diverse population.

Harris has yet to announce whether she will seek the Democratic nomination in 2020, though she is widely expected to make a decision soon.

A spokesperson for Harris did not immediately respond to The Hill’s attempts to confirm the move.

If Harris decides to run, she will join what is expected to be a crowded Democratic primary field. Roughly half a dozen candidates already have entered the race and several more are expected to do so in the coming weeks.
