Vice President Kamala Harris has been noticeably — and embarrassingly — absent during and after the fallout from President Joe Biden’s Afghanistan debacle, proving once again that her leadership skills leave much to be desired.
According to The Post Millenial, it appears as if Harris has prioritized at least one upcoming event, which involves high-profile Democrats from across the nation rushing to California to save Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) from being recalled and booted out of the governor’s mansion.
Harris will reportedly soon be traveling to the state to campaign for the embattled mayor, whose chances of being recalled are growing by the day.
Dems are scared
Make no mistake — Democrats might have written off the possibility of Newsom being recalled last year, but a massive movement in favor of kicking him out of office made the possibility very real in past weeks, as polls teeter in one direction or the other ahead of the Sept. 14 election.
In response, Democrats from around the country have raced back to the liberal bastion of California with the hopes of saving Newsom, including Harris, who will soon travel there after her first scheduled trip to campaign for the governor was pushed back by the ISIS-K terrorist attack in Kabul that claimed the lives of 13 U.S. service members.
California media outlets, including the San Fransisco Chronicle, labeled Harris’ upcoming trip as a “significant step” in helping Newsom save his position, though it’s unclear how that’s possible, given that Harris is not exactly popular with Democratic voters or voters in general.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) traveled to the state over the weekend with the hopes of urging the state’s voters to reject the notion of recalling the governor.
The situation is apparently of such desperation that President Biden himself is scheduled to stump for Newsom in the state in the coming days, according to Axios. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed the trip last month but wasn’t able to provide specifics.
The rise of Elder
Conservative radio host Larry Elder (R), is the front-runner to replace Newsom should voters in the state move forward with the recall. The Black conservative superstar has gained impressive momentum in the weeks leading up to the recall election.
According to Fox News, Elder has been the target of intensifying — and outlandish — attacks from the left, including the Los Angeles Times labeling him as the “Black face of white supremacy.” On Monday, a California professor campaigning for Newsom echoed the asinine attack.
Elder, however, has the thick political skin needed to endure such attacks. He told Fox News last month: “I anticipated that would happen. This is why a lot of people don’t go into politics because of the politics of personal destruction.”
Should Newsom be successfully recalled and Elder win the governorship, California could soon be in good hands and on its way back to the wonderful destination it once was.
