Abortion rights were a huge driver for the Democrats’ success in elections in 2022 and ’23, ever since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade and states began enacting more restrictions and even outright bans on abortion.

But the issue has not been prominent in the Republican presidential primary, mainly because all of the major GOP candidates oppose abortion rights and the party doesn’t want to remind women, especially, of where they stand. So Vice President Harris is crisscrossing the country to bring it back into the spotlight, starting in the Midwest and over the last few days, bringing her message to Sacramento and San Jose. 

For more on this, KCBS's Doug Sovern, Patti Reising, and Bret Burkhart spoke with Dr. Anna Sampaio, Professor of Ethnic Studies and Political Science at Santa Clara University, where she specializes in race and gender politics.
