July 15, 2019 - Harris Profiled by The New Yorker Magazine

A profile for The New Yorker Magazine analyzes her political past as well as her navigation of the presidential contest thus far. The profile cites Harris’ challenges, including being compared to men, being criticized by some progressives for her law enforcement record as attorney general, and being doubted due in part to the lack of Black and South Asian women who have held high-level political office before her. In response to those electability doubts, Harris says, “I didn’t listen.” Author Dana Goodyear also points out, “She tells her own story uneasily,” something that Harris agrees with in the interview. This remained something that challenged Harris for the duration of her presidential campaign, including how she would both navigate and present her gender and racial identities in campaigning.
