A senior Trump campaign adviser told Fox News on Saturday that they expect additional events to be added to the vice president’s schedule. Following the vice presidential debate, Pence will travel to Arizona for events on Thursday.
Pence and his wife, Karen, have both tested negative for coronavirus twice following the president and first lady Melania Trump’s positive results.
Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.
Before Democratic nominee Joe Biden chose Harris as his running mate in the 2020 election, the California senator and former attorney general launched her own bid for the presidency.

But her presidential campaign faltered in late 2019 and Harris ended her White House bid in December. Biden picked Harris for his ticket in August.
Biden and Harris had a dust-up last year during a Democratic presidential primary debate in Miami, where Harris criticized comments by the former vice president spotlighting his ability to find common ground during the 1970s with segregationist senators with whom he disagreed, and over his opposition decades ago to federally mandated school busing.
