Kamala Harris campaign spending fuels speculation of presidential run


Democratic Senator Kamala Harris of California is still in her very first year as an elected senator, and speculation is continuing to rise that she is already plotting a run for president in 2020.

In addition to holding multiple fundraiser events with Democratic celebrities in the Hamptons, Harris has been using the same online media firm, Revolution Messaging LLC, that Sen. Bernie Sanders used to boost his rise in popularity during his run in the Democratic presidential primary campaign season.

A report by the Washington Free Beacon revealed that Harris has doubled down on her campaign spending to Revolution Messaging, having now spent over $650,000 with the firm this year in order to get her message out.

The spending has paid off, as Revolution Messaging has reportedly helped Harris raise a whopping $218 million in online donations.

One donor who attended a glitzy fundraising event in the Hamptons with former top Hillary Clinton contributors, including now-disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein, reported stated, “She’s running for president, take it to the bank. She’s absolutely going to run.”

Prior to running for Senate, Harris served as the 32nd Attorney General for the state of California.

Free Beacon reported:

Harris, who is regularly floated as a Democratic candidate for president in 2020, paid Revolution Messaging LLC, a Washington, D.C.,-based online media firm, $255,000 from her campaign committee, Kamala Harris for Senate, between July 1 and September 30, according to its October quarterly report.

The campaign spent a majority of this money—$234,737—on web advertisements, the filings show. The remaining $21,000 went toward campaign consulting. Harris’s campaign reported spending $508,270.03 the last three months, meaning that the $255,737 that went to Revolution Messaging accounted for more than half of its expenditures.
