A Wednesday New York Times report detailed ongoing struggles within the presidential campaign of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).
“Ms. Harris is under pressure from liberal activists who are pushing Democrats toward newer, bolder horizons,” according to the report. “She has repeatedly sought to placate the left since setting her sights on the presidency — an impulse many in her orbit say is reinforced by her campaign chair, Maya Harris, her sister.”
In The Times’ view, “liberal” equates to “far-left.” While some in her campaign and in the Democratic Party reportedly want Harris to push further left, others want her to remain squarely center-left, in the wheelhouse of the establishment Democrats. This has posed a challenge for Harris, who has walked back her original support for policy proposals like Medicare For All and allowing prisoners to vote.
“These tensions, along with Ms. Harris’s instinct for caution, have slowed her candidacy,” the report said.
It also noted that while Harris’ campaign tries to figure out what exactly it message is, she has turned her focus to attacking President Donald J. Trump, perhaps the only uniter of the warring factions of the Democratic Party.
The Times said:
Ms. Harris sidestepped a question from The New York Times about her pivot toward Mr. Trump — “I’m running against President Trump because I think he should not be president,” she said — but her spokeswoman said the senator is eager to “prosecute the case’’ against Mr. Trump, invoking a phrase Ms. Harris has used intermittently.
“Going forward she is actively going to do that,” said Lily Adams, the spokeswoman.
As of Wednesdays, nearly every major Democratic Party primary poll has Harris in fourth place. Just above her is Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Both trail Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who trails former Vice President Joe Biden by a whopping 20-30 points, depending on the poll.

“You All Think I’m Kidding, Don’t You?”: Joe Biden Calls Himself Kamala Harris’ RUNNING MATE
The Democrats aren’t even attempting to hide it anymore.
While campaigning in Georgia Tuesday, Joe Biden once again drew attention for something he said. This time he referred to himself as Kamala Harris’ running mate.
“My name’s Joe Biden, I’m Jill Biden’s husband, and I’m Kamala’s running mate,” Biden said to what was probably a small crowd. A few people cheered while he chuckled and followed up by saying, “You all think I’m kidding, don’t you?”

This is no flub or gaffe; he knew exactly what he was saying. Back in September Kamala Harris accidentally spilled the beans when she referred to “a Harris administration, together with Joe Biden.” There have been at least a couple similar “mistakes” from Joe in the recent past as well.
So either it’s a running gag or they’re being completely honest about giving Joe the role of a figurehead de jure president while Kamala runs the ship as the de facto president. The Trump campaign ought to continually hammer this point as Election Day draws near.
