Sen. Kamala Harris will be in Raleigh on Monday, her first visit to North Carolina as the Democratic nominee for vice president.

Harris, a U.S. senator from California and former attorney general, will give a speech Monday afternoon at Shaw University. She plans to speak about the Supreme Court and “what’s at stake in this election for the American people, from the Affordable Care Act to other issues affecting their everyday lives,” according to the Biden-Harris campaign.

Remarks are to be live streamed on the campaign website, JoeBiden.com

The campaign said she will then be part of a “Sister to Sister meets Shop Talk” roundtable with Black North Carolinians about voting. “Shop Talk” is the name of Biden-Harris $280 million television and digital ad campaign targeting Black voters in battleground states, which includes North Carolina. One of the national ads was filmed in a Durham barbershop.

Begins with a tribute to RBG, moves to critique of Trump on the replacement. “The voters would like to have an opportunity to vote for a president before a vote on the SCOTUS nominee.” The key point is that we are now in an election.
“The American people have the power” What’s at stake:

1. vote like your life depends on it. Picking a justice who will get rid of the ACA affecting 20 million affecting pre-existing conditions (e.g. pregnancy could be such a condition) driven by Trump “blind rage” against PBO. cite ACB opinion against Roberts; cites ACB opposition to Roe v. Wade.

2. vote as if your right to vote depended on it. Voter suppression. cites Florida de facto poll tax upheld by Trump judges

3. vote as if your family depends on it. systemic rights covering basic human rights.

“They want you to feel tired”

“We will not give up, we will not give in”

“This election is about our democracy.”

mentions how Shaw U. was the cite for the founding of SNCC.
