— Jan T

“Why not be who she is? Why would she have to put on a performance? That’s the sad part, let’s see some true colors.”

— Eric Frock

“I found Senator Harris to be more likeable than Vice President Pence and far more likeable than the current occupant of the White House!”

— Kathleen Budesky
