VP Harris courts Black Voters with economic tour

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris on Monday will launch a multistate tour to tout economic opportunities for Black Americans in an effort to mobilize a critical voting base for Democrats ahead of November’s election.
A major focus of the tour is energizing and engaging Black men, according to a White House official, a key demographic shown by polls to have lost some faith in the Democratic Party. Winning them back will likely determine whether President Joe Biden returns to the White House.

A recent Wall Street Journal poll of seven swing states showed more Black men planned to support Republican Donald Trump than Biden in the rematch of the 2020 election.
Harris will participate in a moderated conversation with Earn Your Leisure’s Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings, who have used podcasts to increase financial literacy in Black communities.
The tour, which heads to Detroit next week, will focus on investing in communities, building wealth and ensuring Americans of all colors have economic opportunities, according to the White House. It will also highlight the administration’s achievements, including a $158 million federal grant for Atlanta that will reconnect Black communities cut off by major highways with the city’s downtown.
