Kamala Harris swings through Michigan ahead of 2022 midterms

Vice President Kamala Harris visited Detroit on Saturday to attend several events with Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist. 

Kamala Harris's trip to the Motor City included highlighting federal bills like the CHIPS Act which is intended to bring more manufacturing back to the country.

Harris first participated in a Michigan Democratic Party Finance Event with Whitmer and Gilchrist. 

"This is not just about talk this; this is about action," Gilchrist said. " When you vote, Michigan is better; when we show up, Michigan gets stronger."

She then went to Focus Hope in Detroit, which helps provide education and training for minorities in the city.

From there, Harris will travel to Southfield for a voter education event with students at a local school.

"Today is you who are organizing and advocating to change the climate crisis to end gun violence to protect reproductive rights; our nation needs you," said Harris.
