Left-Wing Democrats Not Thrilled About Kamala Harris for President

"Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) may be courting Hillary Clinton’s donors and drawing comparisons to Barack Obama in the mainstream media as she aims for a possible presidential run in 2020. But the “Berniecrats,” the left wing of the Democratic party, are skeptical of her prospects.

"RoseAnn DeMoro, executive director of National Nurses United, a union that supported Bernie Sanders in 2016 and is often to be seen at left-wing protests in the state, toldthe New York Times last month: “She’s not on our radar … In terms of where the progressives live, I don’t think there’s any ‘there’ there.”

"Others, according to Mic.com, are skeptical of the fact that Harris has courted Wall Street donors — including Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin, who donated to her 2016 campaign for U.S. Senate. They cite Harris’s decision not to pursue a civil enforcement action against Mnuchin’s OneWest bank when she was California’s attorney general.
"Mic.com quotes Winnie Wong, co-founder of People for Bernie, dismissing Harris’s claims to be “progressive”: “She is the preferred candidate of extremely wealthy and out-of-touch Democratic party donors. … Her recent anointing is extremely telling. These donors will line her coffers ahead of 2020 and she will have the next two years to craft a message of broad appeal to a rapidly changing electorate.' ” . . .
