Democrat donors are allegedly lining up to support Kamala Harris for challenging Donald Trump in 2020.
Kamala Harris is a brown, female, youngish Leftist. No wonder Democrats are smitten by her. No doubt they see her as combining the “virtues” of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
They are not thinking straight.
As a Californian, Kamala Harris represents the Coastal oligarchy. And she is on record as supporting extremely Left causes. Barack Obama ran on a center-leftist, moderately anti-war platform. Harris has none of that going for her. The DNC is at the center of a campaign to re-freeze the Cold War with the Kremlin and perhaps even heat it up.
All that seems to matter to the DNC is galvanizing their extreme base.
Thus, The Hill reports, “Dem donors buzzing about Kamala Harris.”
The Democratic donor class is abuzz about Kamala Harris after the freshman California senator was feted this weekend at an event in the Hamptons surrounded by top fundraisers.
The Bridgehampton event, where Harris mingled with top donors and supporters of Hillary Clinton, was the ultimate signal that Harris is “thinking much bigger” than the Senate, one top bundler said.
“She’s running for president. Take it to the bank,” another fundraiser said. “She’s absolutely going to run.”
Donors say Harris is giving them a glimmer of hope when they need it the most.
They see the former prosecutor-turned-California attorney general as embodying the qualities a Democratic presidential candidate would need to win the White House in 2020.
They also see the 52-year-old African-American woman as a fresh face.
“There’s a big hunger out there for somebody new and different,” said Bill Carrick, a Democratic consultant who served as an adviser to former Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.), who challenged Harris in last year’s senatorial race.
“People are looking for champions. … She’s in that category. There are people who might not know her real well but want to like her. What little they know, they like.”
