Rumors of Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris of California running for president in the 2020 election have been running rampant in recent months and it looks as if she is set to announce an official run on or around Martin Luther King Jr. Day, reports KCBS Radio.

Sources told the California-based station that Harris would “probably” make the news public at a rally in Oakland. However, Harris’ camp told The Hill that an announcement isn’t near and that the senator would not be in Oakland that weekend.

Harris has been on a book tour promoting her memoir, The Truths We Hold, and has said that she would make a decision soon.

In recent appearances, Harris said that she believes the country is ready for a woman president.

“We have to give the American people more credit, and we have to understand that the American public and the people of our country are smart people who will make decisions about who will be their leader based on who they believe is capable, who they believe has an honest desire to lead, to represent, to see them, to be a voice for them even if they have no power,” she told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

If Harris were to announce soon, she would join Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who announced last year that she is starting an exploratory committee for a potential run for the White House.
