Kamala Harris Dances Around Questions About MAGA Candidate Funding

During an interview with Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Vice President Kamala Harris refused to answer questions about whether Democrats should have been spending money funding MAGA Republicans in their midterm primaries.

As the Biden administration has been working overtime to paint supporters of former President Donald Trump — whom they have labeled “MAGA Republicans — as enemies of the state, extremists and threats to “democracy,” the fact that Democrats went out of their way to fund the campaigns of MAGA Republicans seems hypocritical.

The left began funding these primary campaigns because they believed that the candidates would be easier to beat in the general election than more “moderate” Republicans.

Now, following President Joe Biden’s divisive primetime speech in which he attacked and demonized his opposition in what was supposed to be an apolitical event, the Democrats’ funding decisions are being called into question.

After defending Biden’s speech from criticism that he is being politically divisive, Harris went on to refuse to answer questions about the left’s funding of MAGA Republicans’ campaigns.

Todd began the segment by asking Harris whether it was appropriate for the Democrat Party to fund primary campaigns of Republicans they feel would be easier to defeat in the upcoming general election.

“I’m not going to tell people how to run their campaigns,” the vice president told Todd, who expressed concern that Democrats may have helped more conservative, America First Republicans ultimately be elected to Congress.

The NBC host didn’t want to let her get away with dodging the question, so he once again pressed her to respond.

“I’m not going to tell people how to run their campaigns, Chuck,” Harris replied, adding, “I know that it is best to let a candidate, along with their advisers, let them make the decision based on what they believe is in the best interest of their state. I’m not going to tell people what to do that way.”

Todd once again reframed the question, pressing the vice president to give the public some answers.

“You’re not worried that this reflects poorly on the Democrats?” the NBC host asked.

Harris once again refused to answer.

“I think that what we have to focus on is that in 60 days as of this interview, in less than two months, we are looking at a midterm election in which so much is on the line,” the vice president said, going on to spin the discussion toward issues that are important to Democrats.

Todd’s concern stems from reporting showing that Democrats had spent approximately $44 million funding conservative candidates within five states — California, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Maryland, according to OpenSecrets.com.
