Kamala Harris is set to rally Democrat voters in support of embattled California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D). Reports on Sunday said the former California senator will appear alongside Newsom at a campaign event in the Bay Area this coming Wednesday.
The two plan to call on voters to back Newsom in the upcoming recall election. This comes as 48 percent of Americans said they don’t approve of Harris’ job performance, making her one of the most unpopular politicians in U.S. history.
“This period between now and the midterms is critical for the Biden administration for their chances of holding control of Congress, but probably also the White House,” stated a source to CNN. They added a Republican governor would probably undermine many of the Democrats’ objectives.
Harris was expected to campaign with Newsom last month, but those plans came to halt upon the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan and the terrorist attack that killed 13 service members.
On Wednesday, September 8th, @VP will travel to the Bay Area. More details to come!

Recent polling showed a slight majority for Newsom to remain in office. However, it is in the poll’s margin of error.
Meanwhile, the recall election is slated for Sept. 14 where voters will be asked two questions including, whether Newsom should be recalled and who should succeed Newsom if he is.
