Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) put her brand of radical progressivism on display during last week’s nationally televised Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings as part of the modern day “Democrat Inquisition” of the Supreme Court nominee.
She didn’t ask a single tough question of Kavanaugh’s accuser. But she didn’t hesitate to lay into Kavanaugh with questions that, as President Trump observed, sought to “inflict pain and embarrassment” on the judge. Then, when he responded with righteous indignation, she accused him of not having the proper judicial temperament.
She and Cory Booker led a walkout of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s most liberal senators. Harris even refused to vote when called upon by the chairman. Watch her childish antics below:
The week before Harris put out a fake video that she unethically edited to make Kavanaugh look bad.
She’s hoping to be rewarded for her hyper partisanship with support for a presidential run in 2020.
So it shouldn’t be surprising that she would take her take-no-prisoners style on the road. Or that Ohio, a key swing state, would be tops on her list of stops.
While in the Buckeye State this weekend Harris will pump up Democrats who share her hatred of Trump. That would include Sherrod Brown, running for a third term to the U.S. Senate, and gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray, among others.
Brown faces a growing challenge from Rep. Jim Renacci (R-OH-16) while Cordray squares off against Mike DeWine.
Both Brown and Cordray share Harris’ vision for big government and socialized healthcare.
Bringing in “California Kamala” to rally middle-America won’t score many points among common-sense Ohioans, said RNC spokeswoman Mandi Merritt.
She said Brown, Cordray and the Democratic ticket “have left hardworking Ohioans behind and instead embraced a coastal-elitist agenda that is wrong for Ohio.
“Clearly they didn’t learn their lesson in 2016 when voters rejected these failed policies, but voters will remind them again in November.”
Looks like when @KamalaHarris hits Ohio next month, she'll be spending plenty of time with influential donor types all over the state. At least four fundraisers planned for @SherrodBrown over 3 days. The invites I've seen so far > pic.twitter.com/ww3amVltBM

Bringing in one of Washington’s lead obstructionists to speak to the needs of Ohioans is just the latest example of how out-of-touch the Ohio Democratic Party has become, Merritt said. This is the same Kamala Harris who:
- Supports Bernie Sanders’ $32.6 trillion bill to give government total control of the U.S. healthcare system, though Ohioans are still struggling from the rising premiums of Obamacare.
- Has been dubbed “Queen of Sanctuary Cities” for her enthusiastic support of this reckless policy that threatens Cincinnati and Ohio.
- Opposed Trump’s tax-cuts, calling the “shameful” and a “win” for the rich, even though middle-class Ohioans continue to benefit from the historic reforms.
Ohioans overwhelmingly supported President Trump in 2016. Do Ohio Democrats really think embracing big government and higher taxes will help swing working-class voters back into their fold?
Ohio will find out on Nov. 6.
