Today’s Action: Get Out The Vote TODAY to support Kamala Harris TONIGHT!

Tonight is the debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic VP candidate and California Senator Kamala Harris. We can only hope it will be less viscerally painful to watch than last week’s debate between Trump and Biden…but Pence’s political beliefs are just as oppressive and hateful as Trump’s, even if they do appear with less garbled interruption tactics. And as head of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, the blood of 275,000 American lives are just as much on his hands as Trump’s.

With Trump’s recent stint in the hospital, Pence’s position as VP has been thrust into the limelight. We DO NOT WANT Pence as a President any more than Trump, but Republicans will be looking at Pence through a lens of new possibility tonight. So today…we’re focusing on voting Pence out and voting Kamala in.
