“Many of us have been saying, ‘Are we going to be ok? What’s happening with our country? Can we survive this? There have been so many of us who have been throwing things at that inanimate object called the television, going to individual or group therapy about it all,” Harris said. “Nothing that we have achieved in this country that has been about progress came without a fight. We like a good fight.”

“Because of the success of this event, tomorrow morning I’ll be wiring the House Democratic Caucus $50,000,” Herring said. “This is our time.”
