Harris warns Dem donors: ‘Our majorities in the House and the Senate are incredibly slim’

With historically slim majorities in both the House and Senate, Democrats in Congress aren’t in the best shape looking to the 2022 midterm elections — and even some of the most high-profile members of the party seem to be taking notice.

According to the Washington ExaminerVice President Kamala Harris warned during a virtual fundraiser Friday that Dems are at risk of losing control of both of houses of Congress come November 2022.

The VP’s remarks came during what the Examiner described as a “California-themed” fundraiser to benefit the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Slim majorities

During her talk, Harris was said to have specifically focused on legislation to improve election integrity that is being considered in a number of Republican-led states.

She said such measures could prove disadvantageous to Democratic efforts to retain political power in Congress.

She also reportedly urged her Democratic colleagues and supporters to “fight back” against such election reforms, which in most cases do little more than add or strengthen voter ID requirements and scale back or standardize various forms of absentee and early voting.

“And here’s the truth. Our majorities in the House and the Senate are incredibly slim. OK? They are,” Harris said during the virtual fundraiser Friday, according to the Sacramento Bee. “And we know that Democrats are going to need big voter turnout in 2022 to hang on to the House and the Senate.”

She went on: “And in states across the country, there are some who are pushing legislation that would make it more difficult for people to vote, I believe, with the hope that people just won’t vote.”

Pricey donations

The Bee noted that the Friday event featured a number of top Democratic officials from California in addition to Harris, who previously had served as the state’s attorney general and junior senator before being tapped during the 2020 campaign season to serve as Joe Biden’s running mate.

The California event was reportedly attended by a “few hundred people,” and while many of those were donors from that state, the fact that it was “virtual” allowed supporters from other parts of the country to participate, as well.

That participation comes at a cost, of course, with donations starting off at $100 to $5,000 for “sponsors, leaders, supporters, champions, friends or advocates” of the DNC, and topping out at $20,000 for co-hosts and $36,500 for hosts.

It’s the second such event that Harris has participated in over the last few weeks. Deadline reported that Harris had been chosen to headline a “Pride Celebration” fundraiser for the DNC in late June. Required donations for that event ranged from $50 all the way up to $40,000.

  7. It’s just a way for Demcoms to disrupt sites we like & want to respond to. They ruin it really. I do think they are paid to do it but not the kind of dough they just make up in their illiterate schemes. If you clicked their link, you’d probably have a problem as a guess……….yet, they will censor us for anything. Yeah, their day is coming.
