Kamala Harris: 'Unions built the middle class in this country'

Kamala Harris @KamalaHarris
Unions built the middle class in this country and during our campaign we are going to remind people of that fact.


Harris on Warren

Elizabeth Warren
by Kamala Harris
April 20, 2017

During a Senate floor debate this year, Senator Elizabeth Warren read a letter from Martin Luther King Jr.’s widow Coretta Scott King. Minutes later, she was silenced mid­sentence by majority leader Mitch McConnell, under an obscure and rarely invoked Senate rule.

“She was warned,” Senator McConnell said. “She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

Yes, she did. And it was just the latest example of this plainspoken daughter of the Plains standing up for the middle class and the marginalized.

I first met Elizabeth after the 2008 housing crisis, when we battled the big banks and mortgage lenders together. I witnessed a fierce and fearless fighter, the same progressive champion who oversaw the $700 billion bank rescue and fought to create a consumer-­protection agency. Today I’m honored to serve alongside her in the Senate.

In these tough times, Elizabeth Warren persists. And America’s hardworking families are lucky that she does.
