The California Senate race is between two Democrats this year: the establishment one, Attorney-General Kamala Harris, and the crazy one, congresswoman Loretta Sanchez. Sanchez is well back in the polls, and theatrics like this probably won't help.

The moderator in Wednesday's U.S. Senate debate had a no-nonsense approach to time limits, but when it came time for Rep. Loretta Sanchez to wrap up her closing, it took him a good 10 seconds before he could quiet her enough to move on to Harris.

After being interrupted by the moderator several times, Sanchez finally stopped, pausing to strike a pose as Harris looked on.

What happened next was at first a mystery.

For viewers at home, the camera showed just a reaction from Harris, who bit her lip and looked to the audience, eyes wide. To see Harris' face, go to 55 minutes and 29 seconds in the video below.

Laughing, Harris says, "So, there's a clear difference between the candidates in this race."

But a photo captured by Los Angeles Times photographer Rick Loomis appears to show Sanchez in a pose resembling "the dab," a dance move created by rap group Migos and popularized by NFL star Cam Newton.

The viewers saw only Kamala Harris' incredulous reaction.
