Kamala Harris

(DailyEmailNews.com) – Despite being one of his challengers four years ago, Kamala Harris is turning a blind eye to reaffirm her support for Joe Biden, characterizing the Democrat as a “fighter” amid concerns over his mental and physical decline.

Speaking at a campaign rally in Nevada, Harris claimed that former President Donald Trump’s potential re-election could lead to authoritarian rule.

She also addressed the difficulties Biden has faced following a problematic debate performance.

“We always knew this election would be tough, and the past few days have been a reminder that running for president of the United States is never easy,” she observed.

“But the one thing we know about our president, Joe Biden, is that he is a fighter. He is a fighter, and he is the first to say, when you get knocked down, you get back up.”

The context of her speech was set against the backdrop of increasing pressure within their party after House Democrat Mikie Sherrill joined the calls for Biden to step aside.

“I realize this is hard, but we have done hard things in pursuit of democracy since the founding of this nation. It is time to do so again,” Sherrill stated on social media.

During her speech, Harris emphasized the critical nature of the upcoming election, describing it as the “most existential, consequential and important election of our lifetime.”

She highlighted the significancе of the event, which focused on engaging Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities.

Harris also shared personal rеflections about her mother, Shyamala Gopalan, a cancer research scientist from India who emigrated to California for her studies.

“My mother had two goals in her life: to raise her two daughters and to end breast cancer,” Harris recounted.

She celebrated her mother’s independencе and determination: “My mother never asked anyone’s permission to pursue her dreams.”

Looking ahead, Harris is set to continue her outreach efforts at a town hall in Philadelphia, emphasizing the importancе of Asian American representation and participation in the political process.

“We need to make sure that AA and NHPI voices are heard at the ballot boxes around our country, just as we need to make sure that those voices are represented in all levels of government,” she noted in a recently released campaign video.
