Early on in the campaign, Harris, who intones with the quiet urgency of a preacher, was dipping into a quarter jar she keeps just to pay for gas for the campaign. The off-brand diapers she purchases for her one-year-old are $15 dollars, she said, the cost of working two full hours at the state’s minimum wage of $8.25.

She represents, in part, a new brand of Democratic challengers holding unapologetically left views—Harris calls them “the people’s issues”—invigorated by a climate where the party’s base is dissatisfied with the old guard and hopeful of ousting those entrenched electeds who have lost touch with what’s important.
