As others have pointed out, she also seems to be confounding the GOP/right-wing on what narrative to deploy in their attacks on her. Do they try and paint her as a “too tough on crime” former prosecutor, in an effort to somehow dissuade Black / non-white voters Biden Harris 2020 USA Election Democrat Party Political Gift shirt backing the Biden-Harris ticket? Well, that’s undercut by both Biden’s existing platform on criminal justice reform, as well as Harris’ policy stances in the Senate. Do they try and paint her instead as some sort of “Antifa radical who will destroy American law enforcement”? Well…how does that track her record as both a district attorney and state attorney general? And the problem for the GOP is that, because they couldn’t decide on a narrative ahead of time (which is a massive sign of incompetence given that Harris was pretty much the frontrunner for the VP slot since Biden locked down the nomination back in March),

I still believe Sen. Tammy Duckworth would have been a stronger pick, but Harris is both unsurprising and still a strong choice. She has a strong personal story — daughter of two immigrant civil rights activists, largely raised Biden Harris 2020 USA Election Democrat Party Political Gift shirt her single mother following her parents’ divorce, fairly diverse upbringing between elementary education in post-segregation CA and middle & high school education in Canada, undergrad education at Howard University, then a career of “firsts” as she rose through CA law enforcement politics (first Black district attorney in CA, first female CA Attorney General, first Indian American in the Senate, and now first Black and first Asian American VP candidate for a major party).I much preferred Warren but over the past 24 hours I’ve begun to realize how oddly well placed she is. Republicans can’t quite attack her as “tough on crime” nor say she is soft on crime given her prosecutorial history/controversies.

The amazing part is Biden has kind of been fundraising with his hands tied behind his back. Even if its the same person a fundraiser with the VP nominee is bound to bring in more than with a Senator and VP hopeful. I am hoping the fundraising picks up from July when unfortunately Trump outraised Biden Harris 2020 USA Election Democrat Party Political Gift shirt Also I would not undersell the opening this gives for Harris to do South-Asian specific fundraisers. They’re above average in wealth in the US and politically one of the more conservative-leaning immigrant groups in the USA. She’s too moderate. Newsom wants easy re-election and with no Republicans seriously in contention, he has to worry about his progressive left flank and pro-business moderate right flank. The moderates have almost nothing to offer Newsom. They can’t concede on the split roll property tax or any other state measure.
