Summary

Political opponents of Harris, including President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, have repeatedly mispronounced her name.Her first name is pronounced "KAH'-mah-lah" — or, as she explains in her biography, "'comma-la,' like the punctuation mark."Perdue's opponent Jon Ossoff, tweeted that his rival "mocked Sen. Harris' name," adding, "We are so much better than this."My opponent, GOP Sen. David Perdue of anti-Semitic attack ad infamy, just mocked Sen. Harris' name as "Kamala-mala-mala-whatever" at a Trump rally.We are so much better than this. We've raised $1M (!) since my opponent disgraced himself with bigoted mockery of Kamala's name at yesterday's Trump rally," Ossoff wrote on Twitter.Georgia's Democratic Party urged Perdue to apologize."Senator Perdue's intentionally disrespectful mispronunciation of Senator Harris's name is a bigoted and racist tactic straight from President Trump's handbook," Nikema Williams, chair of the Georgia Democratic Party, said in a statement.
