Sen. (D-Calif.) shared a video of her asking a baby to agree that she’ll run for president in the future on Wednesday, a day after Harris announced she would be ending her presidential campaign.
“You gonna run for president one day?” Harris asks the baby she’s holding.
“Yes? You gonna run for president one day? Say, ‘Yes, I’m gonna run for president,’” the senator continued.

A record of six women ran in the presidential primary this year. Harris and Sen. (D-N.Y.) ended their bids leaving four women in the field of 15 candidates.
With Harris, who is black and Indian, out of the race, many were also quick to call out the lack of diversity in the remaining field, including candidate Sen. (D-N.J.).
Booker told BuzzFeed News’s AM to DM he’s seen “the bile, the anger, from my family members, to people in the Congressional Black Caucus, to leaders of color across this country who just don’t understand how we’ve gotten to a point now where there’s more billionaires in the 2020 race than there are black people.”
Booker and former Massachusetts Gov. are the only remaining black candidates in the 15-person field. Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro and businessman are the only other people of color in the race.
Two billionaires, and former New York City are still in the race.
