Kamala Harris: Democrat ‘It Girl’

Posted on | August 2, 2017 | Comments Off on Kamala Harris: Democrat ‘It Girl’


Michael Krieger highlights a story about California’s freshman Sen. Kamala Harris, who will spend the weekend in the Hamptons being courted as a 2020 presidential candidate by big-money Democrats:

The California senator is being fêted in Bridgehampton on Saturday at the home of MWWPR guru Michael Kempner, a staunch Clinton supporter who was one of her national-finance co-chairs and a led fund-raiser for her 2008 bid for the presidency. He was also listed as one of the top “bundlers” for Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, having raised $3 million.
Guests there to greet Harris are expected to include Margo Alexander, a member of Clinton’s inner circle; Dennis Mehiel, a Democratic donor who is the chairman of the Battery Park City Authority, even though he lives between a sprawling Westchester estate and an Upper East Side pad; designer Steven Gambrel and Democratic National Committee member Robert Zimmerman.
Washington lobbyist Liz Robbins is also hosting a separate Hamptons lunch for Harris.

So, the deep-pocket donors, the D.C. lobbyists and the public-relations hacks all agree that this woman from California is their ticket for 2020. Remember when Democrats were the party of “the little guy”?
