Kamala Harris, who is seeking to be the first black woman elected to the U.S. Senate in two decades and only the second ever, discussed the challenges that the country faces and reminded her supporters of their responsibilities as voters at a breakfast she hosted during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
“We have great challenges,” Harris said. “We have challenges in terms of our Senate race. We have the challenge in terms of what we will do to elect Hillary Rodman Clinton as the next president of these United States.”
Harris was elected Attorney General of California in 2010, making her the first female, the first African American and the first Asian American to hold the key position. (Her mother was born in India and her father in Jamaica.)
