Vice President Kamala Harris
She spent part of her day Thursday speaking with families eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program in North Carolina.
Harris reaffirmed the administration's commitment to full securing the right to vote and protecting access to democracy.
Harris' remarks, couched in the civil rights movement's legacy, push back on the idea that people can wait for a better time to pass voting rights legislation.
The president's comments Friday reflect a significant turn from early remarks such as telling people they will have to out-organize voter suppression yet again.
Harris is not beyond critique, but the fixation on picking apart every little action she takes is beyond ridiculous. Black immigration activists taking issue with Harris telling people not to come here as a solution to the immigration crisis was valid. It's quite rich that people like Noonan complain that Harris isn't taking things "seriously" when the president, her supervisor, seems to be at times out of touch with our current reality.
