Tony Fisher, a law enforcement pioneer, has been the first black Police Chief of not one, but two different cities. Takoma Park Maryland, and Spartanburg South Carolina. Fisher echoes the sentiment shown by polls that among likely African American Democrat voters, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders actually poll higher than Kamala Harris for the 2020 presidential race.
Although it appears that Tulsi Gabbard is not going to be in the next round of Democrat debates, it appears as though she certainly succeeded at lopping off some of Kamala’s support by highlighting her policies as a District Attorney that have not been received well among many on the left and in the urban community. This was done during a back and forth at the last set of Democrat debates.
The Washington Examiner spoke with Tony Fisher and were able to get some of his thoughts on the upcoming Democrat primary. Fisher is a self-described moderate and fiscally conservative and hints that Kamala Harris’ record on how she handled police violence cases as a top local and state prosecutor left him wanting more.
The Washington Examiner reported:
“One of the issues that is really important to me is that in many cities that were faced with police out of control. The Justice Department historically went in and worked out a consent decree over how they can improve relationships and policing going forward,” Fisher told the Washington Examiner on Wednesday while attending a campaign event for former Vice President Joe Biden, in Spartanburg.
Harris’ campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Harris’s record as a prosecutor, which her campaign sees as a general election asset if she can make it that far, has previously garnered criticism from Democratic rivals. During the second Democratic debate in July, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard cited blemishes on Harris’ prosecutorial record, including the fact that as San Francisco district attorney her office put 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations.
The Examiner also cited a poll by the Post and Courier that found Kamala Harris at 12% with black voters, while Biden shows 36%. This could be partially because of Biden’s history of being former President Barack Obama’s VP.
Also cited was a poll from Morning Consult showing Joe Biden at 38%, Bernie Sanders at 21% and Kamala Harris at 16% among black voters.
Kamala Harris has tried to be relatable to the African American and Urban community but so far it doesn’t seem to be paying off too well. In a pair of tweets recently she took to the platform to bash President Trump on how she thinks he doesn’t care about the planet, followed up by a video of what appears to be her cooking some chicken in a kitchen. Videos of Democrat candidates trying to be relatable are not uncommon these days as seen by Elizabeth Warren drinking beer, and Beto O’Rourke at the dentist’s office.

The climate crisis is a direct threat to our nation, and the president is putting our future in the hands of climate change deniers, Big Oil, and corporations.
Recently Kamala Harris took criticism from multiple media outlets for calling for gun control DURING a shooting in Philadelphia that lead to six police officers being shot and wounded. This same incident resulted in protesters rallying against police in the city. Although Democratic calls for gun control are almost always par for the course during situations like this, Harris’ particular handing of this one was especially unpalatable.
On a more national scale, Biden, although leading in the aforementioned polls has been struggling to keep his #1 spot among Democrats in general due to gaffs and mistold stories such as the one in the video below. Based on the information we have so far, anyone who says they know for sure who the 2020 Democrat presidential nominee is going to be is just guessing.
