Kamala Harris

Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, stopped outside the Supreme Court Saturday morning, following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

"Justice Ginsburg was a titan—a relentless defender of justice and a legal mind for the ages," Harris said in a tweet. "The stakes of this election couldn't be higher. Millions of Americans are counting on us to win and protect the Supreme Court—for their health, for their families, and for their rights."

More than a month before former Vice President Joe Biden's stated deadline for naming his running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris is seen as the consensus front-runner to become Democrats' vice presidential nominee.

Speculation about running mates can be wrong, of course. Ultimately, the choice is Biden's and Biden's alone — just as it was Barack Obama's call to tap Biden in 2008.

New Hampshire Democrats — and 19 candidates seeking their party’s nomination for president — were in Manchester this weekend for the state Democratic Party convention. For attendees it was a chance to express their commitment to unseating President Trump. But it was also a chance for activists to consider — and reconsider — which sort of candidate might be most up to that task.

If elected President, Sen. Kamala Harris says her administration would pursue obstruction of justice charges against a former President Donald Trump.

During a campaign stop in Nashua, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris criticized a measure passed Tuesday by the Alabama legislature that would ban nearly all abortions in that state.

“Let us all agree that women’s health care is under attack, and we will not stand for it,” Harris told a standing room only crowd inside of Girls, Inc., a non-profit dedicated to empowering young women.  

The Alabama statute, which is expected to be signed into law by Gov. Kay Ivey, would make performing an abortion a felony except in very limited circumstances.
