Kamala Harris got some bad news that could end her 2020 hopes
Kamala Harris made a fool of herself during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.
She hoped her grandstanding would catapult her to the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination.
But all her hopes and dreams were crushed with this news.
Senator Kamala Harris is in danger of losing her seat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Republicans gained seats in the U.S. Senate.
Since Harris is the least-senior Democrat on the committee she may be done for.
The Hill reports:
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is at risk of potentially losing her seat on the Judiciary Committee as Senate leadership prepares to negotiate the makeup of the committees heading into next year.
Because Harris is the least senior Democratic member on the high-profile panel and Republicans gained seats in the November midterms, the potential 2020 White House contender could, but is not guaranteed to, lose her seat.
Lily Adams, a spokeswoman for Harris, told The Washington Post that Harris told Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) that she wants to stay on the committee next year. Schumer, in a statement to the publication, said they were working to keep her on the panel.
President Trump may have a chance to nominate one or more Supreme Court Justices.
The hearings could be even uglier than the fight over Kavanaugh.
And Harris knows she needs to be on the Judiciary Committee to stay in the limelight.
According to her spokeswoman, Harris raised more than $5 million in 2018, which she used to curry favor for 2020 by passing it along to other Democrats.
She raised much of that by fundraising off of her anti-Kavanaugh attacks.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Harris ran dozens of anti-Kavanaugh ads on Facebook the day prior to Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony.
Do you think Kamala Harris would beat Donald Trump if they faced off in 2020?
