Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.)  also endorsed Harris for president in the 2020 election on Monday, saying she "embraces the future."

"Known Kamala for many years & worked together on various issues," Lieu, a progressive Democrat, tweeted. "She embraces the future, not the past, and is the person we need to move America forward."

Harris on Sunday officially launched her bid for the presidency with a speech touting equality in Oakland, Calif., that drew thousands of attendees.

Her campaign slogan is "Kamala Harris: For the People." 

The California senator is joining what is expected to be a crowded Democratic primary field. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) have each launched presidential exploratory committees, while former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro (D) and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) have officially launched bids.
