Vice President Kamala Harris told Democrats on Saturday to remind voters that they got what they voted for. Harris spoke at the Washington Hilton for the Democratic party’s winter meeting.
“I know, and I believe we know, when we show what we have accomplished just in a year, and when we show it as because the American people voted, I believe we will meet the moment again,” Harris said. “But that is our task. Our task is to show people that, in many ways, they got what they ordered. Right?”
The Vice President continued, “They said this is what they wanted. They stood in line. They took time from work. It was difficult. And a lot of what they demanded, they got. So let’s get out there, as we do, and remind them of that. Because we know that they will show up again.”
“They will say, ‘Yes, we must fight climate change.’ They will say, ‘Yes, I wanted and got and want more diversity on the Court.’ They will say, ‘Yes, we must fight to protect reproductive rights.”
Harris also touched on her meetings with the US’s European allies (Fox News). She confirmed that the US is committed to Ukraine as it resists the Russia invasion. Harris said, “The United States stands firmly with the Ukrainian people [and] in defense of the NATO Alliance.”
The Vice President’s speech at the Democratic National Committee comes ahead of what is expected to be a tough midterm election.
