Vice President Kamala Harris avoided a question about whether she could explain what she meant when she said that the administration would consider “equity” for disbursing natural disaster relief.

These comments were made on Friday after Hurricane Ian hit Florida as a Category 4 storm and South Carolina as a Category 1 storm. In Florida, there were 47 deaths caused by the Hurricane. Harris’s comments were part of her appearance at the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum.

Harris during the event said that the Hurricane had affected less affluent communities and communities of color the most. She had also added that resources would be “based on equity” and that this would help the fight for both equity and equality.

When Harris was asked for a further explanation of what she meant she did not answer.

Christina Pushaw, rapid response director for Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ campaign, took to Twitter to say that what Harris was claiming was inaccurate. She added that “FEMA Individual Assistance is already available to all Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian, regardless of race or background.”

On Friday the White House also announced that it was collaborating with DeSantis and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) so that those affected by Hurricane Ian could get the necessary assistance.

Hurricane Ian hit on Wednesday afternoon near Cayo Costa, Florida, and it was only 2 mph shy of being categorized as a category 5 storm.
