California Sen. Kamala Harris looks like will not get her party’s nod to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.
Progressives in the Democratic Party such as Sen. Dianne Feinstein seem not convinced that Harris should represent the party as they try to retake the White House.
Feinstein, who comes from Harris’ own state, told The New York Times Thursday that the youthful lady senator still needs to prove herself at her current role.
When asked about Harris’ political future, Feinstein responded: “She just got here.”
“What she should do is concentrate on being a good, and possibly a great, United States senator. The rest will either happen or not happen,” Feinstein added.
Harris, who’s popularity is rising since being elected to the U.S. Senate last November, reportedly raised more than $600,000 in the first six months of 2017 for Senate Democrats for the 2018 midterms.
The Daily Caller reports:
“She’s not on our radar,” RoseAnn DeMuro, a supporter of former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, told the New York Times about Harris’ potential White House run. “She’s one of the people the Democratic Party is putting up. In terms of where the progressives live, I don’t think there’s any ‘there’ there.” DeMuro heads National Nurses United, as well as the California Nurses Association.
