Vice President Kamala Harris wishes Paul Pelosi a speedy recovery and calls for civil discourse, not hate

During a campaign event in Maryland on Saturday, Vice President Kamala Harris wished Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a speedy recovery after he was attacked at their San Francisco home. The speaker of the House of Representatives, who represents California, is from Baltimore, where Saturday’s event was held.

Paul Pelosi attacked by a man who broke into their home early Friday morning. He has since undergone surgery and is expected to make a full recovery, according to the speaker’s office.

Although police have not officially released a motive for the crime, they said on Friday that it was “not a random act” and that it was targeted and “wrong.” The suspect allegedly yelled at Paul Pelosi, “Where’s Nancy? Where’s Nancy?” And according to the Associated Press, suspect wrote about QAnon and other various conspiracy theories, and seemed to believe the false claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

Harris said that what is happening in our country right now is terrible.

“There was a time when we valued and understood the importance of vigorous debate to democracy, when we appreciated that it was diversity of opinion that would lead us to progress toward sensible solutions,” Harris said. “But something is happening in our country where powerful people, so called leaders, are using the podium given to them by the people to maintain their personal power and be used to divide our country. country”.

While such behavior fuels hate, Harris said people should strive to engage in civil discourse. She also urged people to vote as there are ten days left until election day.

“We have a lot of work to do, and that’s why I know who’s here, and I know that this is a room of leaders who every election show up and remind our neighbors and our friends, perfect strangers that we see, but in their faces, we we see a neighbor and a friend and ask them to vote,” Harris said.

The Maryland Democrats GOTV event was held for Sen. Chris Van Hollen and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wes Moore. The vice president also campaigned for Representative Anthony Brown, who is running for Maryland attorney general, and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, who is seeking re-election.

Harris said there are several issues in the midterm elections, including the right to contraception. She mentioned the June decision of the Supreme Court destroyed by Roe v. Wade.

“Proponents of the decision said, ‘Well, we think now it’s a decision that should go up to the states and the voters can decide, right?’ But look who’s talking, because out of those same mouths you’re going to see people pushing laws across the country that will intentionally make it harder for people to vote,” Harris said.

Given those concerns, she said democracy was at stake in the midterm elections, adding that the U.S. must be a world leader.
