CHARLOTTE (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) – Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris visited the Queen City on Wednesday, just days after postponing a visit due to a campaign staff member testing positive for COVID-19.
Harris was in Asheville Wednesday morning campaigning and then boarded a private jet that was headed to Charlotte.
“We need North Carolina and that’s why I’m here, that’s why he’s been here. The people of North Carolina are very much going to be a very big part of deciding this election, so we’re here to encourage the vote,” Harris said at the airport before heading to Charlotte. “Vote early. But also we’ve been here to listen to folks because we know the people of North Carolina want the kind of support they deserve from their president.”
Harris landed at 2 p.m. and visited a men’s clothing store, Social Status, and checked out some sneakers, according to a statement released by her campaign. Harris then headed to Truist Field in Uptown for a virtual fundraising event and a socially distant campaign rally.
Harris held an early voting mobilization event that began at 6:45 p.m. and her husband Doug Emhoff, Mayor Vi Lyles and Duke women’s basketball coach Kara Lawson were among those in attendance.
