Vice President Kamala Harris pushes for Georgians to vote at Juneteenth block party

ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) – On the eve of Juneteenth, Vice President Kamala Harris made her second trip to Atlanta in a week.

“Somebody asked if I was moving here,” said Harris. “I said maybe.”

The action shows just how important Georgia is to the 2024 presidential election.

“This election is coming down to a choice for each of us, to determine and decide what kind of country do we want to live in?” said Harris.

Earlier the vice president met with local rapper Quavo in a summit addressing gun violence. Afterward she hosted a Juneteenth block party.

“As we celebrate Juneteenth and our call to action, let’s ensure that everybody who thinks they are registered to vote actually goes to to make sure you’re registered to vote,” said Harris.

Harris made a case to Georgians as to why people should vote for her and President Joe Biden again.

“Be it the freedom to have access to the ballot, be it freedom to learn America’s full history, be it a woman’s freedom to make decisions about her own body,” said Harris.

Simultaneously, across the country in swing state Wisconsin, former President Donald Trump was making his case for reelection.

“This guy is just the worst, Joe Biden, the worst president in the history of our country,” Trump said. “Together, we will make America powerful again. We will make America wealthy again. We will make America strong again.”

Harris said the power lies in voters’ hands, and she believes Juneteenth is the time to recognize that.

“Let’s think about Juneteenth as a way that reaffirms our commitment to holding onto our freedoms and rights,” said Harris.
