CULVER CITY, California – Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to California on Wednesday to promote the state’s Democratic governor, Gavin Newsom, in the final days of his recall.

The Newsom campaign said Harris would perform with Newsom at a rally in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Harris, a former California senator, is one of a number of Democrats who have rallied in California to raise the turnout for Newsom ahead of the September 14 election. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) Was due to appear with Newsom at a rally in Culver City on Saturday, and Newsom said he expected President Joe Biden “to be out here soon”.

Harris was supposed to rally Bay Area voters with Newsom last month but canceled the trip after a terrorist attack in Afghanistan that killed 13 US soldiers.

Newsom is facing a recall that appeared to be finalizing in recent weeks, with some polls suggesting that Democrats’ lackluster interest in the race may give Newsom’s Republican opponents a chance even in heavily Democratic California. In the latest poll by the Public Policy Institute of California, however, the recalls failed by far.
