Joe Biden has chosen Kamala Harris as his running mate. And already, the California Senator has come under fire.
Twitter lit up when Biden made his announcement, and much of the feedback was negative. During the Democratic primaries, Harris failed to pick up steam with moderates or progressives, and was perceived by many to be off-putting.
Senator Harris checks all the boxes for Joe Biden. But do Americans really want a ‘San Francisco values’ person to be President? Ask yourself this question: what’s the difference between Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi? Fair and smart analysis on https://t.co/rryWmyXe7C.

Kamala Harris’ positions:
– banning fracking
– banning plastic straws
– using executive orders to ban “assault weapons”
– phasing out private healthcare insurance;
– nearly-complete restriction of religious freedom to the private sphere.
Yes, she’s a pragmatic moderate, guys.

Meanwhile, many on the left are expressing excitement at the prospect of Harris debating Vice President Mike Pence–while simultaneously asserting that the presidential debates between Donald Trump and Joe Biden be cancelled.
