U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris is running for president after chasing after a pro-lifer and attacking a Catholic nominee.
Jonathan Keller of California Family Council says Harris's announcement marks the first time in "quite a while" that a California lawmaker is making a run for the White House.
Harris is serving her first term as senator after serving as California attorney general.
"And I wish I could say I was excited about that," observes Keller, "but unfortunately Senator Harris' record is out of step with the majority of the country, and I'm afraid it's even out of step with the majority of a lot of Californians."
Then-Attorney General Harris gained national attention in 2016 for her coziness to Planned Parenthood after she used her state office to raid the apartment of pro-life activist David Daleiden (pictured at right), a pro-life activist.
Daleiden's undercover footage of Planned Parenthood officials created a public relations fiasco for the abortion giant and made him Enemy No. 1 of abortion supporters overnight. That same year, Planned Parenthood sued Daleiden in federal court over his fake fetal-tissue procurement company that relied on fake ID's and deceptive tactics to gain access.
That lawsuit is still ongoing in a San Francisco federal court.
"It really was an example of [Harris] showing a greater loyalty to Planned Parenthood and the extreme abortion agenda," says Keller, "than to the First Amendment and to her own citizens in the state of California."
Beyond the abortion issue, there is also the issue of religious liberty. Americans need to know that Harris attacked a federal court nominee over his affiliation with Knights of Columbus, a Catholic men's organization known for its charity work.
"She essentially said the Knights of Columbus was an extremist organization," Keller complains.
The motto for the Kamala Harris 2020 campaign is "For the People."
