RoseAnn DeMoro, executive director of National Nurses United, a union that supported Bernie Sanders in 2016 and is often to be seen at left-wing protests in the state, told the New York Times last month: “She’s not on our radar. … In terms of where the progressives live, I don’t think there’s any ‘there’ there.”In other words..just like other Democrats?
Others, according to Mic.com, are skeptical of the fact that Harris has courted Wall Street donors — including Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin, who donated to her 2016 campaign for U.S. Senate. They cite Harris’s decision not to pursue a civil enforcement action against Mnuchin’s OneWest bank when she was California’s attorney general.
Mic.com quotes Winnie Wong, co-founder of People for Bernie, dismissing Harris’s claims to be “progressive”: “She is the preferred candidate of extremely wealthy and out-of-touch Democratic party donors. … Her recent anointing is extremely telling. These donors will line her coffers ahead of 2020 and she will have the next two years to craft a message of broad appeal to a rapidly changing electorate.”
Wong said that Harris could gain left-wing favor if she supports single-payer health care and a $15-per-hour federal minimum wage, among other “progressive” policies.
