Harris’s political opponents have repeatedly mispronounced her name since she became the first black woman and the first person of South Asian descent on a national ticket Democrats say the mispronouncements are the responsibility of racism Her first name is pronounced « KAH’-mah-lah » – or, as she explains in her biography, « ‘comma-la », as the punctuation mark « 

Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are some of the top Republicans who have pronounced it wrong on several occasions A few Democrats, including former President Barack Obama, have also said it wrong

Harris spokeswoman Sabrina Singh responded to Perdue’s remark in a tweet: “Well that’s insanely racist Vote with him” In a second tweet, she wrote: “He’s his colleague in the Senate for over 3 years 3 Years THREE Doing better « 

Casey Black, spokesperson for Perdue’s campaign, tweeted that the senator « just mispronounced Harris’ name »

« He didn’t mean anything by that, » Black wrote. « He was making an argument against the radical socialist agenda she was pushing at &, her supported candidate Jon Ossoff »

Ossoff, who runs against Perdue in November, tweeted that his opponent « made fun of Sen Harris’s name, » adding, « We’re so much better than that »

Ossoff, who organized an unsuccessful congressional candidacy in a 2017 special election, also tweeted a video fundraising post of Perdue’s comments and said in another tweet: “Senator Perdue n ‘would never have done that to a male colleague Or a white colleague And everyone knows that « 

« The intentionally disrespectful mispronunciation of Senator Harris’s name by Senator Perdue is a sectarian and racist tactic taken directly from President Trump’s handbook, » Nikema Williams, chairman of the Georgia Democratic Party, said in a statement « He owes the Georgians an apology for his offensive display »
