In a stunning display of political prowess, Vice President Kamala Harris has once again proven herself as the ultimate tie-breaker in the Senate.
On Tuesday, she shattered a 191-year-old record previously held by John C. Calhoun, leaving a trail of awe and admiration in her wake. With 32 tie-breaking votes and counting, Harris has shown that she’s not here to play games; she’s here to get things done.
Harris’ historic achievement came during the vote on the nomination of Loren L. AliKhan to be a district judge for the District of Columbia. This monumental 32nd tie-breaking vote further solidifies her position as a political force to be reckoned with. Her journey began in January 2021, and she shows no signs of slowing down.
To honor her extraordinary accomplishments, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer presented Vice President Harris with a “Golden Gavel.” This prestigious award has been bestowed upon individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the Senate’s work. It’s a fitting tribute to a woman who has dedicated herself to the betterment of her country.
With plenty of time left in her term and Majority Leader Schumer’s ambitious agenda, it’s safe to say that Harris will have ample opportunities to add more tie-breaking votes to her impressive tally. As she continues to break barriers, Harris is proving that she’s a force for change and a symbol of progress.
In a political landscape marked by division, Vice President Kamala Harris stands as a beacon of hope and unity. Her historic tie-breaking votes have paved the way for crucial legislation and positive change. As the first woman and first minority to hold the office, she’s not just breaking records; she’s breaking barriers. Whether it’s supporting small businesses or confirming judges, Harris is making her mark on history, one vote at a time.
