(RightWing.org) – Once again, Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is refusing to take questions from the media.
On Monday, September 28, Harris criticized President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee after a speech at Shaw University in North Carolina. Harris sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee and will ask Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett questions during confirmation hearings.
A reminder that it has been 42 days since Harris was tapped as the VP pick.
There are 42 days until election day.
The senator has not once formally taken questions from the press.

As expected, the VP candidate ripped the GOP for moving forward with the nomination with just weeks to go before an election. In recent days, Harris faced criticism for not taking questions by the press. It’s a developing pattern that has left reporters wondering why she won’t make herself available to the media.
Harris intimated on Monday that Democrats wouldn’t allow Barrett to take the seat. However, there is nothing Democrats can do to stop Barrett from being confirmed by the Senate. Republicans hold a 53-47 majority in the Senate. To confirm Barrett, all they need is a simple majority of 51 votes. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has been assured that Barrett has enough votes to confirm her to the Supreme Court.
The hearings to confirm Barrett could become contentious. Look to us for coverage once they begin.
