February 05, 2019 - 7:00 am

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Democratic Sen. Kamala (KAH'-mah-lah) Harris is planning a tour of the nation's four early-voting states in the first full month of her presidential campaign.

Harris' schedule announced Tuesday includes two days each in South Carolina, New Hampshire, Iowa and Nevada, states where support will be key to building momentum in a crowded 2020 Democratic field.

The first-term senator from California will make her first visit to New Hampshire and then her first stop in Nevada since she officially declared her candidacy. She will be returning to Iowa and South Carolina, which she visited after launching her bid.

While the Harris campaign says specifics will be released later, the dates of her early-states tour are: South Carolina, Feb. 15-16; New Hampshire, Feb. 18-19; Iowa, Feb. 23-24; and Nevada, Feb. 28-March 1.
