    Revelation that her husband recovered from COVID-19 with the aid of hydroxychloroquine has lowered Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar's odds for snagging the spot as Biden's vice-president on the Democratic ticket for this year's election. CNN's Chris Cuomo called it "a likely coup de grâce for her. This is the drug touted by Trump. Every Democrat is expected to hold to the Party line view that it is dangerous and ineffective." Klobuchar has publicly adhered to the Party line, calling the drug "a menace" and mocked Trump's recent declaration that he has taken it as a preventive therapy. She sought to...

    In the realization that the fear of the coronavirus that is keeping people from resuming normal life won't last forever, Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) and Ed Markey (D-Mass) are cosponsoring legislation that will pay everyone in America until the virus' impact on the economy subsides. Their bill is called the Monthly Economic Crisis Support Act and would provide a monthly $2,000 check to single individuals, $4,000 to married couples, and $2,000 for each child (up to a maximum of three per family). To be eligible, your income needs to be less than $120,000 per year. "The hope...
  • Kamala emerges as early Biden VP favorite as sting of debate attack fades

    Politico ^ | 5/10/20 | Christopher Cadelago, Natasha Korecki
    Kamala Harris was written off as a possible vice presidential pick for Joe Biden last year after a cutting debate performance where she seemed to suggest he was racially insensitive. Now, Harris is not only in top contention, but Biden aides, surrogates and major donors see her as the best fit at the onset of the process - at least on paper - to join him atop the Democratic ticket. Biden’s campaign has formally started vetting a group of prospects that includes roughly a dozen women. But in interviews, more than two dozen Democrats, including advisers, allies and donors aligned...

    Kamala Harris’ first significant political role was an appointment by her powerful then-boyfriend Willie Brown, three decades her senior, to a California medical board that has been criticized as a landing spot for patronage jobs and kickbacks. Then 30, Harris was dating 60-year-old Willie Brown, at the time the Democratic speaker of the California State Assembly, when he placed her on the California Medical Assistance Commission in 1994. The position paid over $70,000 per year, $120,700 in current money, and Harris served on the board until 1998. The medical commission met twice a month, and Harris, a United States senator...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris announced legislation Friday that would create a bipartisan 9/11-style commission to probe the federal government's response to the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S. Schiff, D-Calif., formally introduced legislation in the House that would establish the bipartisan commission, while Feinstein, D-Calif., and Harris, D-Calif., said they planned to introduce companion legislation in the Senate. The commission, according to the three Democrats, will “examine U.S. government preparedness in advance of this pandemic, the Federal government’s response to it, and provide recommendations to improve our ability to respond to and...

    California Sen. Kamala Harris has made an unusual fundraising move that is sure to fuel speculation about her prospects to be Joe Biden’s running mate on the Democratic presidential ticket. Harris, who dropped out of the White House race in December, has set up the kind of arrangement with the Democratic National Committee that is typically reserved for nominees trying to attract large donations from the party’s biggest boosters. Harris, 55, will host her first virtual fundraiser Thursday under the new agreement. It allows contributors to give the maximum of $357,800, with $2,800 going to retire Harris’ presidential campaign debts...

    California Sen. Kamala Harris is backing former Vice President Joe Biden for the 2020 Democratic nomination, offering a warm political embrace that's a stark reversal from her aggressive debate stage tactics against him nine months ago.

    California Senator Kamala Harris joined several of her former Democratic presidential candidate colleagues in officially endorsing Joe Biden for president Sunday, describing him as the figure to unify the party. **SNIP** "I just want to let you guys know that I have decided that I am with great enthusiasm going to endorse Joe Biden for president of the United States," Harris wrote in a statement released on her website and social media Sunday morning. "Like many women, I watched with sadness as women exited the race one by one. Four years after our nominee, the first woman to win the...

    Jill Biden opened an old wound with Kamala Harris as the California senator's name circulates as a possible running mate for Joe Biden. Harris's standout moment during the 2020 Democratic primary was her takedown of Joe Biden during last summer's opening debate in Miami. The political grenade caught the two-term vice president's campaign off-guard because of her friendship with his son Beau Biden. The pair were the attorneys general of California and Delaware, respectively, at the same time. Jill Biden, during a breakfast fundraiser in upscale Glencoe, Illinois, recalled her husband's shock when Harris took him to task for opposing...

    Kamala Harris’s Catholic Problem It will come up again, should she be chosen as a running mate. “Perhaps the deepest and most troubling mystery of Kamala Harris’s tenure as a prosecutor centers on the disturbing issue of sexual abuse of children by priests,” writes Peter Schweizer in Profiles in Corruption. As a senator, Harris has been a loud critic of those who protect “predators” — a rich charge, given her woefully negligent record as district attorney of San Francisco and attorney general of California, notes Schweizer: “During her decade-and-a-half tenure as a chief prosecutor, Harris would fail to prosecute a...

    A group of 15 Democratic senators wrote to 11 major banks last week asking them to ban funding oil and gas drilling or exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. "The scale of your banks’ assets individually, let alone together, give you the ability to drive change in protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and in shifting towards a U.S. financial sector that effectively analyzes and plans for climate risks," the senators wrote. "We respectfully urge you to reassess your current environmental and climate policies and update them to include a prohibition on funding for oil and gas drilling or...
  • Watch: Chuck Schumer Scolds Kamala Harris for Messing Around at Impeachment Presser

    Senator Chuck Schumer held a press conference today and was not in any mood to play around. Watch below as Kamala Harris is playing around with Sherrod Brown when Schumer turns around and admonishes her. This is NOT a good look for Democrats. Schumer will be in hot water with the #MeToo crowd that is offended by just about anything. The race card could also be in play with this one. Would Schumer have done this to a white male? It’ll be interesting to watch what happens with this. The best part of the video is when the lame reporter...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is considering backing former Vice President Joe Biden in the Democratic presidential primary, The New York Times reported Thursday. Multiple Democratic officials familiar with the California senator’s deliberations told the Times she’s weighing the option of backing her former primary opponent. The officials told the Times the potential endorsement would not be likely until after the Senate impeachment trial that kicked off this week. Harris’s spokesman Chris Harris told the Times the senator “remains focused on the ongoing impeachment trial.” “No decisions have been made about whether she will endorse, which candidate, nor when an endorsement...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Thursday was caught flashing a large grin before lamenting the transfer of two impeachment articles to the Senate as a “solemn, serious moment” in an interview with MSNBC. Harris, who recently ended her ill-fated presidential campaign, is seen smiling at someone in the room before host Kasie Hunt questions her about the Senate’s upcoming impeachment trial against President Donald Trump. Once she realizes she is on a live shot, Harris’ demeanor swiftly changes. “This is a solemn, serious moment,” she says of the impeachment process. “These are the most serious charges brought in the history...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A day after U.S. Senator Kamala Harris ended her 2020 presidential bid, former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading contender for the Democratic nomination, said on Wednesday he would consider her as a potential running mate. Biden, with whom Harris clashed during a Democratic debate earlier this year, praised her after a campaign event in Ames, Iowa. “Senator Harris has the capacity to be anything she wants to be,” Biden told reporters, according to a video posted by CBS News. “I talked to her yesterday. She’s solid. She can be the president one day herself. She can...

    Now that Kamala Harris has dropped out of the 2020 race, Julian Castro, whose campaign is also fading fast, is blaming the media in part for holding Harris to a double standard. As everyone knows, if there’s one thing every Democrat has to worry about at election time, it’s bias from the mainstream media. At least, when journalists aren’t helping you pick out clothes at a boutique.

    Do you remember where you were at 9:26 p.m. EDT on July 31? Sen. Kamala Harris certainly does. That was the moment her campaign for president ended. She only just got around to admitting it on Tuesday. Harris, a former prosecutor in San Francisco and attorney general of California, had performed swimmingly in one of the two Democratic debate sessions held in late June. She made a real impression by taking former Vice President Joe Biden down a notch. Although she carefully avoided using the word, she insinuated that Biden’s erstwhile opposition to federally mandated busing made him a racist....

    Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., swiped President Trump on Tuesday after he mocked her sudden exit from the 2020 campaign trail. Trump, who in the past has expressed glee when would-be Democratic opponents exit the 2020 race, had some fun at Harris' expense on Tuesday evening after his former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, tweeted about Harris leaving the race. "Too bad. We will miss you Kamala Harris!" Trump tweeted.
