Vice President Harris is cancelling a campaign stop in support of California Governor Gavin Newsom after the ISIS-K attack in Afghanistan.
Harris is returning to the U.S. from a swing through Southeast Asia and had planned a stop in the Bay Area today for the Democratic governor, facing an upcoming recall election. That's where she started her political career as a prosecutor. Harris is instead returning to Washington D.C.
Harris, who had been in Singapore and Vietnam this week, was scheduled to appear with Newsom at the Cow Palace Arena & Event Center in the Bay Area Friday afternoon for a car rally. Golden State Democrats were looking forward to Friday's homecoming of sorts for Harris because of her immense popularity within the Democratic base and her unique ability to galvanize both female voters and Democratic voters of color at a time when the party is worried that disaffected California Democrats will sit out the recall election.
