3 Facts Kamala Harris Doesn’t Want 2020 Voters to Know

A blistering new report by U.S. News & World Report about Democrat rising star Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) reveals a temperamental senator with a taste for the finer things in life.

Harris is widely viewed as a potential Democratic candidate for the White House in 2020, despite just arriving in Washington this year. She’s fundraised in the Hamptons and is helping down-ballot Democrats by attending rallies. She’s even helping an Atlanta mayoral candidate by stumping for her this weekend.

But today’s expose reveals facts about Harris that she and her team likely don’t want getting out, particularly to potential 2020 supporters.

“She’s Fancy”

“Her travel would be a first-class seat and a fine hotel. Maggie Hassan would be at the Sheraton in New York City, and Kamala would stay at the Ritz,” says a former staffer at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, referencing the former New Hampshire governor who successfully ran for the Senate in 2016. “She’s not frugal; she’s fancy.”

Easily Flustered

But as stories began to surface about her spending, Harris became increasingly frustrated, lashing out at her team and denying culpability for a plan she had signed off on, these sources say.

If a single phone number was wrong on a donor list, Harris would become flustered and refuse to continue the calls. She also spurned spending time at fundraising events that would yield less than $100,000.

“Exceedingly High-Maintenance”

And yet, behind the scenes, there’s a stormy side to Harris that former aides say rears its head when pressure is mushrooming. Conversations with four people who have previously worked with Harris portray her as simultaneously brilliant and obsessively thorough, but also as exceedingly high-maintenance and prone to hostile outbursts. She once, for example, was witnessed berating an aide inside a Washington elevator after a car dropped her off at the wrong location for a breakfast with labor leaders.
