During a trip to South Carolina this past weekend, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) received some fashion advice from reporters as she took a break from campaigning to shop.
Reporters who giddily tweeted about helping Harris included NBC News political reporter Ali Vitali, CNN National political reporter Maeve Reston, and CBS News political reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns.
Update: she bought the jacket ?? ?

We kind of forced @kamalaharris to try on this awesome oversized rainbow sequin jacket … She snapped it up. @alivitali perfectly named it as “the Mardi Gras Jacket” #2020 #SouthCarolina #CampaignFashionReport pic.twitter.com/2G0NFRkKL6

Wall Street Journal Editorial Features Editor took issue with the reporter’s cozying up to Harris.
This is a CBS reporter noting, without evident disapproval, that a CNN colleague is helping dress a Democratic candidate she's supposed to be covering. https://t.co/qa7GgZbs1P
