REPORT: Harris Campaign Stumbling, Senator ‘Trying to Reset’

The Harris campaign is faltering after a strong start, according to a Wednesday report.

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.

New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol

Order Must be Restored

Published

on

On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests  escalated at the United States Capitol.

The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. 

The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:

The New York Young Republican Club consistently condemned lawlessness and disorder throughout 2020 perpetrated by Radical Left BLM and Antifa activists. We called out the Fake News Media and Democrat politicians who inculcated a culture of acceptance for “mostly peaceful protestors” who violated private property rights and destroyed livelihoods.

Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.

We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.

U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly. 

On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
