LA Times: Senate candidate Kamala Harris makes final pitch to voters

California Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris spent the final day before election day hop-scotching from San Diego to Los Angeles, urging supporters to go to the polls to back down-ballot Democrats in tight races.

Harris started Monday morning at UC San Diego with retired Marine Col. Doug Applegate, who Democrats hope will have enough support to knock off GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, one of the Obama administration’s most vociferous critics.

Applegate told the crowd, a mix of students, union workers and party loyalists, one of the major reasons that Issa was on the ropes was because of the “racism, bigotry and misogyny” of Donald Trump, whom Issa backs.

“Kamala and I are going to stand up to extremism on both sides,” Applegate said. “We’re going to work for compromise, balance and, most importantly, we’ll both put country and our community ahead of party.”
