(ABC News) - California Sen. Kamala Harris announced Monday on "Good Morning America" that she will be running for president in 2020, a move that could make her the first woman and woman of color to serve as U.S. president if elected.Before Harris was elected in 2016 as the junior senator representing California, she was the state's attorney general for six years and San Francisco's district attorney for seven years.

In 2002, a friend of hers whom you might have heard of — Kamala Harris — sought Steele’s help in her run for San Francisco district attorney. Now, of course, Harris is a U.S. senator and a rumored contender for president in 2020. Steele realized back then that too few women were considering a career in politics, and that those who did want to jump into the daunting world of campaigning didn’t know how.
