Vice President Kamala Harris told the Democratic National Committee on Saturday at its winter meeting that the Biden administration largely came through on the campaign promises proposed during the 2020 election cycle.
“Our task is to show people that, in many ways, they got what they ordered,” Harris said. Right? They said this is what they wanted. They stood in line. They took time from work. It was difficult. And a lot of what they demanded, they got. And so let’s get out there as we do and remind them of that.”
Harris’s speech to the DNC comes as Democrats prepare for the 2022 midterm elections, with polls indicating that the party will lose a number of seats in the House and Senate.
The event marks the first time the DNC members have come together in person since 2019 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
On Thursday night, President Joe Biden touted his accomplishments as commander-in-chief, claiming that he has a “record to be proud of.”
“We have a record — a record to be proud of; an agenda that addresses the biggest concerns here in America, in people’s lives; the message that resonates,” Biden said. “Now what we have to do is we have to sell it with confidence, clarity, conviction, and repetition.”
