Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris declared she was a “radical” while running for California Attorney General, The National Pulse can reveal.
The remarks stand in stark contrast to the mainstream media’s attempting to dupe voters that the current California Senator is a “moderate.”

Cooley was referencing how Harris opted to forgo the death penalty for a gang member who murdered San Francisco police officer Isaac Espinoza, with the candidate noting “that became sort of a litmus test for her in terms of her radical views on criminal justice” in 2010.
An attempt to win swing state and working-class votes, mainstream media outlets and the Democratic establishment are keen on portraying Harris as a “moderate” to distance their 2020 ticket from the socialist wing of the party, epitomized by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The New York Times dubbed her a “pragmatic moderate,” ABC’s George Stephanopoulos insisted she “comes from the middle of the road, moderate wing of the Democratic Party,” and The Washington Post even labeled her “a small-c conservative.”
But Harris herself insists otherwise.
And Harris’s voting record reifies her radicalness: according to GovTrack’s legislative-vote analysis, Harris is “ranked most liberal compared to all senators,” even voting to the left of socialist Bernie Sanders.
