AUBERRY, Calif. — California Sen. Kamala Harris says partisan ideology shouldn't govern leaders' responses to wildfires and climate change ravaging her home state.
Her Tuesday remarks came as she toured fire damage in a small foothill community hit by a wildfire sparked in the Sierra National Forest over Labor Day weekend.
It was her first visit to California as the Democratic vice presidential nominee.
Her trip came a day after President Donald Trump visited the state and rejected the scientific consensus that climate change is worsening the state's fires.
Harris told reporters that it's not a partisan issue.
