STORY OF THE DAY
VP Harris fights for Democrats’ future — and her own
BOSTON (AP) — Ruby Brown beamed with excitement in a community college gymnasium as she waited for Vice President Kamala Harris to take the stage at a political rally for the Democratic ticket in Massachusetts
“As soon as her name was announced, I said I had to find a way to go,” said Brown, 58.
The midterms are just days away, with control of Congress and statehouses across the country up for grabs, but Brown and her friends were really hoping for a hint of what might happen a few years down the line.
“That’s why we’re here,” said Lisa Palmer-Glover, 56. “To see what’s next on the plate.”
The comments are just a glimpse of the expectations and special scrutiny that Harris faces as the first person of color and first woman to be vice president — and someone who campaigned for the top job before agreeing to be Joe Biden’s running mate. Full story here:
