Vice President Kamala Harris Returns to Atlanta to Help Consolidate the Black Vote in Georgia

Vice President Kamala Harris was in Atlanta Friday to speak at the annual 100 Black Men of Atlanta conference.

Harris is trying to shore up support from the black community as recent polls show some weakness.

She decided to speak at the conference to talk about what she said the Biden administration had done for them.

Led by comedian Steve Harvey, Harris spoke about the economy while addressing the conference.

Harvey threw his support behind the Biden-Harris ticket.

“If we don’t vote, how are we going to ask for something next time,” Harvey said.

Harris came to Atlanta, in part, to help shore up polling numbers in the black community, particularly among black men.

She spoke about what she sees as the administration’s accomplishments, including increased access to capital and homeownership.

“I wanted to come and speak to the 100 Black Men, this organization because I know who everyone is here. It’s a room full of leaders, everyone who can help get the message out,” Harris said.

But the Republicans backed down. Georgia is also of vital importance to them.

Florida Rep. Byron Donalds didn’t agree with everything Harris talked about and blamed the high inflation on the Biden administration.

“To come out now and give a speech that does nothing, the reality is people have fallen behind under Joe Biden and Kamala Harris,” Donalds said.

But Harris insisted the administration was doing more than Republicans to help the black community.

“People need more than just what is necessary to survive. We want to move forward,” Harris said.

And as if to reinforce Georgia’s importance in the upcoming presidential election, Harris will return to Atlanta on Tuesday.
