VP Kamala Harris says she does not ‘ever wanna be in a bubble when it comes to being … in touch with what people need’

News & Politics

When asked what she considers her “biggest failure” as she approaches the conclusion of her first year, Vice President Kamala Harris said that it has been not traveling outside the nation’s capital city more often, a problem she attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“To not get outta D.C. more,” Harris said in response to the question about her largest failure so far.

The vice president said that when she and President Biden entered office earlier this year, the pandemic was already an issue and “we really couldn’t travel.”

Harris said that “on issues that are about fighting for anything from voting rights to child care … being with the people who are directly impacted by this work, listening to them so that they, not some pundit, tells us what their priorities are,” is something that she considers to be “critically important.”

The vice president noted, “My biggest concern is I don’t ever wanna be in a bubble when it comes to being aware of and in touch with what people need at any given moment in time.”

Many polls have found Harris to be under water in favorability ratings.

Prior to becoming vice president, Harris served as a U.S. senator. She also mounted a presidential bid in 2019, but later dropped out.
