Kamala Harris, a U.S. senator from California and a possible Democratic presidential candidate, met privately with the heir to billionaire George Soros’ fortune and other top liberal donors at her home last month, according to documents obtained by Fox News.
Harris held the private gathering at the invitation of Alexander Soros, the son of the liberal multi-billionaire, at her residence in Washington, D.C. on Dec. 12. Other attendees included hedge fund manager Marc Lasry, an early supporter of Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential bid, and AMC Networks executive and philanthropist Josh Sapan.
A Democratic National Committee member and a representative from the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank founded by former Clinton White House chief of staff John Podesta, also attended the event, according to the documents.
The group discussed a range of political issues, including the potential for Harris to launch a White House run in 2020, sources familiar with the meeting said.
Harris has not officially declared her intention to run, but she has begun to raise her profile on the national stage in recent months, including her interactions with Democratic power players.
The senator has made several high-profile appearances across the country since December, including a visit to Florida and a well-publicized speech at the NAACP’s 110th Annual Convention in San Antonio, Texas.
News of the private gathering, which was first reported by Politico, comes as Harris is expected to make a decision about her 2020 plans in the coming weeks.
