"It's good to be home", she said at a pre-march breakfast where she took to the stage and spun around, showing off a bejeweled jean jacket with the colors of the gay pride flag. "It's long past time to end these racist, birther-style attacks". In making the jump, Harris is now tied with Sen.

"The attacks against @KamalaHarris are racist and ugly", Warren wrote.

"It may make people uncomfortable to speak the truth about the history of our country but we must speak the truth", the California senator told reporters Sunday outside San Francisco's city hall after marching in the city's gay pride parade.
