'We need Indian Country to step up': Democrats rally behind Joe Biden and Kamala Harris
August 19, 2020
Indian Country leaders are standing up for Democrats Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as they seek to defeat Republican President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence this November.
The nation's first Native congresswomen shared a virtual stage Monday, speaking during an Indian Country watch party held before the start of the first day of the Democratic National Convention on Potawatomi homelands in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This year's event is being almost entirely virtually because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Rep. Sharice Davids (D-Kansas), who is seeking reelection following her historic win in 2018, said Biden will elevate the needs of Indian Country, just as he did when he serves as vice president under former president Barack Obama.
