Republicans are not the only ones intentionally mispronouncing the name of the Democratic VP candidate, Kamala Harris. It seems that Democrats themselves have gotten into the act.
In their outreach to Italian American voters, who lean heavily to Trump and the GOP, Democrats are calling Kamala … Carmela!
The effort appears to be paying off as many Italian Americans have a positive reaction to the very Italian name, Carmela.
“My mother’s name is Carmela, as was her mother’s and her mother’s mother,” said Vinny Scappaticci, owner of Vinny’s Humungo Pizzeria and Donut Shop in the swing state of Pennsylvania.
“How could I not vote for a Carmela?” asked Mr. Scappaticci.
But won’t those same Italian voters who are looking to support “Carmela” Harris get confused once they see her correct name on the ballot?
“No,” said a Biden/Harris campaign strategist who chose to remain anonymous. “They will think it’s a typo, most likely. In any event, our research has shown most Italian Americans are not the greatest spellers.”
