Will Kamala Harris, a rising liberal star from true-blue California, help the vulnerable Jon Tester in Montana, or hurt him?
Rising liberal star and leading #Resistance member Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is fundraising for vulnerable Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT), according to a Wednesday report from the Daily Kos.
One of the Daily Kos‘ bloggers wrote about an email he received from Harris, in support of Tester’s tough re-election fight in Montana. Donald Trump won Montana by 20.5 percentage points in 2016.
Part of the email, according to Daily Kos:
Few people have been a better ally than my friend Senator Jon Tester, who has never forgotten where he came from and has been a stalwart ally on some of the biggest fights — like opposing the worst Trump nominees so far, including Jeff Sessions, Betsy DeVos, and Scott Pruitt.
His resistance to Trump’s agenda on issues like health care and women’s rights have made him a top target of the White House. That’s okay though — because I know if we come together to support Jon and his campaign, there’s nothing we cannot overcome in 2018 and beyond.
Tester has sought to cut a moderate profile ahead of his re-election campaign, but the email effort from Harris – a California liberal – cuts against that image.
Tester was made more vulnerable in 2018 by Democrats’ recent loss in the special election for ex-Rep. Ryan Zinke’s (R-MT) seat.
