We’ve heard plenty from the pundits about Tuesday night’s election results — a lot of it through angry tears — but a reporter asked Vice President Kamala Harris if she had any messages for the Democratic Party in the run-up to the midterms. She’s decided she’s going to leave that to the pundits and instead focused on the “great wins” the Democrats enjoyed. Did you know a Democrat won the New York City mayoral race? That was a tight one.
Vice President Kamala Harris says she’ll leave messages for the Democratic Party “to the pundits” following yesterday’s elections.

For the Democratic Party’s sake, it had better have a better analysis than the pundits could come up with, which was that Republicans’ sweep of Virginia was 1,000 percent due to dog-whistle racism.
Just a reminder that along with Harris, President Joe Biden and former President Barack Obama all traveled to Virginia to join McAuliffe on stage.

Sent this to one Dem who responded:
“We had great wins? She must be talking about killing the defund police referendum in Minneapolis”https://t.co/GWnxzdyfS1

Kamala Harris said this on October 29, just 5 days ago: “What happens in Virginia will, in large part, determine what happens in 2022, 2024, and on.” https://t.co/VeQjrYvLY9

What a disaster. Dems need to run a completely different presidential ticket in 2024. Of course they won’t though https://t.co/00OF5ZcPnM

The nice thing about being a Democrat is knowing almost all of the pundits are on your side, to which we can only say, take their advice and run with it.
FLASHBACK: It turns out that Kamala Harris was 100% correct about the McAuliffe-Youngkin race after all https://t.co/MNIsRJ9zP9
