Last fall, Harris held a campaign for DeJear, a popular figure in the country that lost its candidacy to become Secretary of State of Iowa in November. Harris travels with DeJear around the state as she crosses the country, striving to increase the fate of female candidates in congress competitions and during races.
The California senator pledged DeJear's support at a time when there was a strong competition for political talent hoping for 2020 in Iowa and other early state competitions like New Hampshire and South Carolina.
Some Harris rivals actively courted DeJear. Earlier this month, DeJear appeared on stage with Elizabeth Warren during a Massachusetts Senate visit to Ankeny, Iowa.
