Kamala Harris campaigns in Florida Monday, first day of in-person early voting

Florida

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris visited the battleground state of Florida on Monday, the first day of in-person early voting.

Harris stopped in Orlando around noon and Jacksonville at 4:40 p.m.

The campaign had suspended Harris’ travel through Sunday after two people traveling with her tested positive for the coronavirus. Campaign officials said both Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, tested negative for the virus.

“Senator Harris was not in close contact, as defined by the CDC, with either of these individuals during the two days prior to their positive tests; as such, there is no requirement for quarantine,” Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said in a statement.

The senator held a virtual event for North Carolina voters on Thursday night.

Harris last visited Florida in September for two events in Miami Gardens and Doral.
