Kamala Harris has her eye on the White House but has found herself swimming behind the likes of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden on a poll and popularity front.
So, she is now determined to set the record straight on a number of issues she feels may be standing in the way of her win by addressing them head on.
First on the agenda?
Her record on crime.
Don’t quite understand the disdain people in the black community have for Kamala Harris. You can disagree on policy, but I’m seeing a lot more than that.

Watch her discuss that, her problem with Donald Trump, and more on ‘Face the Nation’ below…
When I became a prosecutor and when I was elected district attorney and also attorney general of California, I implemented some of the most significant reforms to date during those years that had been implemented. I created one of the first reentry initiatives. It became a model. It was designated as a model in the United States for what law enforcement should do to be as I call it, ‘smart on crime.'”
I was the first in the nation to require my agents to wear body cameras.
I am on the Senate Intelligence Committee. On a very consistent basis, I receive classified briefings about the threats to our nation’s security. And on the list of potential threats, especially in terms of nuclear threat, North Korea is of course on that list, and Iran is on that list and there are others. But we have to conduct ourselves in a way that we are smart about what we do to have one and one goal only, which is ensuring that our nation is secure. And it cannot be the goal to- to express one’s ego and to engage in gamesmanship without much serious regard to the consequence, and I think that’s what we’ve seen in this president.
