Kamala Harris spoke at a town hall in Spartanburg on Tuesday.

Speaking on health care, equal pay, and tax reform, among other subjects, Senator Kamala Harris made her pitch to potential South Carolina voters during her televised town hall address Tuesday night.

Addressing a crowd at Wofford College, Harris said she supports Medicare for all, equal pay for women, and especially access to abortion, taking aim at the recent spate of pro-life-centered legislation from states like Mississippi, Ohio, and Alabama.

“I’m going to put in place and require that states with a history of passing legislation that is designed to prevent or limit a woman’s access to reproductive health care, that those laws have to come before my department of justice for a review and approval, and until we determine that they are Constitutional, they will not take effect,” Harris said.

Harris also said if elected she would propose a law that would fine corporations if it is found that women are not paid salaries equal to men across the board if they have the same role at the company.
