Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris made a surprise stop to a polling place at the Northwest Activity Center in Detroit, Michigan, to promote early voting.
She was joined by Rep. Brenda Lawrence, whom she greeted warmly after getting out of her motorcade.
When Harris pulled up, some of the people who came in their cars got out with their mail-in-ballots in hand and raised them up as she exited her vehicle. The campaign said there were 65 cars in total.
“You all are going to make a difference. You know, in 2016, right, we remember what happened when we got hit by this natural disaster who’s now in the White House,” she said and the crowd laughed.
Harris mentioned the narrow margin that Trump won Michigan by in 2016.
“In 2016 they won by just on an average two votes per precinct. Think about that! The power of the vote. Two votes per precinct. So let’s make sure that doesn’t happen again, shall we?” Harris said.
Harris spoke wearing a mask while standing in front of a Biden-Harris campaign bus.
