Quick Glance: Republican Leaders Caution Against Racist, Sexist Attacks on Harris
  • Republican leaders are warning party members against using overtly racist and sexist attacks against Vice President Kamala Harris, as they and former President Donald Trump’s campaign scramble to adjust to the reality of a new Democratic rival less than four months before Election Day.

  • At a closed-door meeting of House Republicans, National Republican Congressional Committee chairman Richard Hudson urged lawmakers to criticize Harris solely for her role in the Biden-Harris administration policies.

  • Trump and allies have begun to refer to Harris as a 'DEI' hire - a nod to diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.
