Kamala Harris (D-Caliph.) On Wednesday and said that the Democratic Vice Presidential election would have to answer to her prosecutor’s office.
In an interview with Fox News, Conway pointed to Harris’ record for prosecuting marijuana cases as an area where Harris would fire from the left at her views on criminal justice. At the same time, Conway claimed that they would meet the senator on the right because they were weak in crime.
Harris previously served as California’s legal secretary from 2011 to 2017.
“I think as a California Attorney General, that the position that Kamala Harris has had for much longer than she has been a U.S. senator, people will dig into that post. It looks like she left no one happy,” Conway told Fox .
“She is seen by those on the far left, many who spoke up last night, as not enough for criminal justice reform. She locked over 1,500 people or so on marijuana charges, and by others who are for public safety and law. and order, she’s seen as someone soft on some of these criminals, “the White House official added. “And so, I think she has a very mixed record where people will dig in.”
