Kamala Harris on left-wing protests over the Willow Project:“I think that the concerns are based on what we should all be concerned about, but the solutions have to be, and include, what we are doing in terms of going forward in terms of investments.” pic.twitter.com/QZLU7OXIsO — RNC Research (@RNCResearch) March 16, 2023
Beyond that, Newsom has been campaigning like, well, a presidential candidate would. He showed up in Florida to protest DeSantis’ education overhaul. He’s been touring red states to boost Democrats there this cycle, according to the Associated Press. And then there’s the potential debate with DeSantis. These are all things that Kamala Harris would be doing if she were the unquestioned next in line. She isn’t, and the only people who are really raising a stink about it are the ones close to Harris inside the White House. Mind you, Newsom isn’t the only one openly campaigning for 2028 despite the fact that Harris would usually be given some level of presumptive front-runner status as the vice president. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg hasn’t done a lot for our nation’s transportation system, but the 2020 Democratic nomination-process overperformer has certainly done a good job raising his profile in all the right places. And, in an interview earlier this month with The Hill, former Bill Clinton campaign adviser James Carville implied the field was wide open in 2028 due to a breadth of talent. “You find me somebody more talented than a [Pennsylvania Gov.] Josh Shapiro or [Georgia Sen. Raphael] Warnock or [Maryland Gov.] Wes Moore or [Kentucky Gov.] Andy Beshear or [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer, Mitch Landrieu, [North Carolina Gov.] Roy Cooper, I ain’t seen them,” he said. Notably, he didn’t mention either Newsom or Harris — but the fact anyone this politically connected is mentioning anybody but Harris, much less over a half-dozen names, is telling. So, yeah, of course Harris’ people think this is “disrespectful.” That’s because they still don’t understand the depth of the problem. It isn’t just that she’s not the front-runner for 2028 anymore. Her job now is to convince Democrats she’s a better choice than scads of other challengers who don’t carry her considerable baggage — including her “disrespectful” Californian rival.

Cringe. Kamala Harris doesn’t get it.Holt: “Do you have any plans to visit the border?” Harris: “We’ve been to the border. We’ve been the border.” Holt: “YOU haven’t been to the border.” Harris: “…..and I haven’t been to Europe. I don’t understand the point you’re making.” pic.twitter.com/fFXMf8X0b6 — Andrew Clark (@AndrewHClark) June 8, 2021
