What Happened to Kamala Harris?

Description

When Senator Kamala Harris started her presidential campaign 10 months ago, she drew a crowd of 20,000 to her kickoff rally — the biggest of any candidate’s. She was talked about as a potential heir to the political coalition that carried Barack Obama to the White House. We followed her campaign to South Carolina to explore why, after such fanfare, she’s now polling in the single digits. 

Guest: Astead W. Herndon, a national political reporter for The New York Times, and Monika Evstatieva, a producer on “The Daily.” For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily.

Ought to explore Harris' problems with the black vote, eg African-Americans who dislike her lack of US slave descent and her having a white husband. Touchy subjects, but it doesn't pay to ignore them.

why do the journalists say nothing of Pete Buttigieg? he's the front-runner now and they don't even mention him! just Biden, Warren, Bernie all the time.

So nothing about her record as a prosecutor who jailed black and brown children and their parents? Maybe that's why people don't like her!
