Vice President Kamala Harris arrives in Palm Springs Friday


Vice President Kamala Harris arrived at Palm Springs International Airport shortly after 7 p.m. Friday, although a White House spokesman was silent on the reasons for the non-public visit.

The vehicle Harris rode in was escorted by city police around 7:30 p.m. off Ramon Road. Less than a dozen drivers were arrested to let the vice-president’s caravan pass.

Asked by one of the drivers about what was going on, a municipal agent replied: “Someone is coming”.

Harris, who recently campaigned for Governor Gavin Newsom in the Bay Area ahead of the state’s Sept. 14 recall election, seems unlikely to meet with local Democrats when he visits. Elle Kurpiewski, political director of Democratic Desert Headquarters, said no one she knew was aware of the vice president‘s planned visit.

A White House press release originally said Harris would “fly” to Palm Springs International Airport from Joint Base Andrews at 2 p.m. EST Friday and fly off Saturday morning.

Harris, who was previously the Attorney General of California and represented the state in the United States Senate, and her husband are both from California.

Desert Sun editors Tom Coulter and Eliana Perez contributed to this report.
