Radical or moderate? Trump paints Democratic ticket as both
President Donald Trump's campaign is struggling to define California Sen. Kamala Harris, the newly announced running mate for Democratic rival Joe Biden. Like Biden, Harris has staked out relatively moderate stances over the course of her career on issues such as health care and law enforcement.

Harris ran her own campaign for the Democratic nomination as a relative moderate in the field.
