As a lifelong CA and SF Bay Area resident, I can attest there are a decent number of folks who aren’t in the Harris camp. When her well-known Democratic power broker “mentor” (ahem, they dated) Willie Brown stated recently he’d recommend she decline the VP nom and ascend to the Attorney General role instead if/when Biden wins, then you know there are some areas in her time as San Francisco District Attorney and California Attorney General that will be ripe for attacks by the GOP.
If she were from the Midwest and not CA, she’d be viewed as a net positive for the battles in the swing states. At this point, Dems can only hope it’s a break-even proposition with her as VP.
She lacks progressive bonafides, which will make folks in the Sanders and Warren wings of the Democratic party less than happy.
Hopefully, she doesn’t become a lightning rod or have any “gotcha” moments for the Biden campaign.
Also, CA Gov Gavin Newsom’s speech during the DNC convention could really propel him to frontrunner status for 2024 Dem primaries. You know the suburban white ladies will fall all over themselves when he hits the stage.........
