SAD: Only About 70 People Attend Kamala Harris Event in Iowa, Empty Seats Everywhere



Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) failed to fill small auditorium at an early voting rally in Iowa, an important battleground state to which a visit generally signifies a politician’s plan to run for president.

Those prospects might have been slightly diminished for Harris, the progressive member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who spoke to a crowd of only about 70 in an unfilled auditorium, according to a local CBS reporter.

Harris went out of her way to make a dog-and-pony show out of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, which left a sour taste in the mouths of some.

Still, mainstream press fueled speculation Harris will be a viable contender in 2020.

“California Senator Kamala Harris rolled into Iowa on Monday to stump for Democratic candidates in the final days before the midterm elections and, many suspect, test the waters for a run at the presidency in 2020,” said Newsweek. “A CNN poll conducted by SSRS in early October found Harris to be the third favorite in the list of potential Democratic primary candidates for 2020, though she was a long way behind the leader of the pack.”

According to that poll, former vice president Joe Biden is leading the way for Democrats.
