CNN reporter Maeve Reston gushed over Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris, saying she has gotten a “rock star reception” as she hit the stump in Iowa.

Harris, a 2020 hopeful against Trump, has hit the trail nationwide to encourage voter turnout for the midterms and test a 2020 run. Reston told her viewers that “you could really feel that electricity” at a rally in Des Moines Monday night.

“She’s really gotten a rock star reception,” Reston said. “Last night in Des Moines, you could really feel that electricity among about 500 people who showed up to see her. at the end of that event, they were just, like, moving toward her in a human crush. So, a lot of love for her here in Iowa.”


The language reflects that of ABC reporter Paula Faris, who called Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke a “rock star” who can’t go anywhere “without being noticed.”

“It’s been going really well so far,” Reston continued, speaking with Harris in the background talking to a small crowd on a sidewalk. “She is speaking behind me to a small group of voters that have gathered here to talk to her about early vote and their concerns.” REALTED: Kamala Harris Asked To Name Her ‘Biggest Win’ As A Senator, Lists Off The Committees She Serves On)
