Sen. Kamala Harris says the powerful seek to divide America

Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris, standing outside of Oakland's city hall, formally kicked off her campaign for the White House yesterday, presenting herself as the leader who can best unite an America that is at an "inflection point" and facing a critical question.

She said "we are here because the American Dream and our American democracy are under attack and on the line like never before. And we are here at this moment in time because we must answer a fundamental question: Who are we? Who are we as Americans? So, let's answer that question to the world and each other right here and right now. America, we are better than this."

Harris, a first-term U.S. senator from California who announced her candidacy last Monday, rallied thousands of supporters at the Frank Ogawa Plaza in Oakland, her hometown and where she served as a prosecutor before becoming the state attorney general.
