Harris Lays Out Vision to Campaign Staff
Vice President Kamala Harris appeared in Wilmington, Delaware, on July 22 to accept both President Joe Biden’s endorsement and the established staff and network of the Biden–Harris reelection campaign. She praised and thanked President Joe Biden for his leadership, expressed confidence in her new staff, and outlined her vision for the next four years, should she ascend to the Oval Office. “Together, we [will] fight to build a nation where every person has affordable health care, where every worker is paid fairly, and where every senior can retire with dignity,” she said, adding that building up the middle class would be a “defining goal” of a Harris presidency. She promised to fight for the passage of the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, take action against guns by passing universal background checks, red flag laws, and an assault weapons ban, and pass pro-abortion legislation. Ms. Harris said she hopes the campaign team will help elect a congressional majority who agrees “government should not be telling a woman what to do with her body” and will pass a law that she will sign to “restore reproductive freedoms.” Ms. Harris also named Jen O’Malley Dillon to run her campaign and asked Julie Chavez Rodriguez to stay on board. “We are all here because we love our country, right? And we believe in our foundational principles,” she said in the beginning of her address to the staff. “We believe in freedom, and opportunity, and justice—not for some but for all.” “So, over the next 1​​06 days, we are going to take our case to the American people and we are going to win,” she said.
