I don’t know how I’ve been so privileged but it seems I’m on the Joe Biden for President press release list for North Carolina events. I got this one yesterday announcing Kamala Harris is coming to Asheville today.
Kamala Harris to Travel to North Carolina
On Thursday, October 15, Kamala Harris will travel to Asheville and Charlotte, North Carolina on the first day of in-person early voting in the state.
In the morning, Senator Harris will deliver remarks at an early vote launch mobilization event in Asheville, North Carolina.
In the afternoon, Senator Harris will travel to Charlotte, North Carolina to participate in a campaign hub grand opening.
In the evening, Senator Harris will participate in a voter mobilization event to encourage North Carolinians to make their plan to vote early.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15
Early Vote Launch Mobilization Event with Kamala Harris in Asheville, NC
Start Time: 11:30 AM ET
Pooled Press and Livestreamed
I don’t know why Asheville is being so blessed except that the City Council has voted for reparations and is engaging in a Stalinesque erasure of history to include monuments, statues, and school names. It has been the scene of “mostly peaceful” riots, err, I mean demonstrations downtown.
For the last few years, I’ve been privileged to be on the email press release list of every lefty, progressive, you don’t need an ID to vote, guns are bad, ACB will destroy the Constitution, and we want to turn America into a socialist paradise type of group. I didn’t ask for them and most of the releases are enough to make your eyes roll into the back of your head. But, hey, someone has to get them.
UPDATE: It appears that Kamala will not be gracing Asheville with her presence. The groan you heard was all the sad lefties who were disappointed.
And the reason the event was canceled?
WLOS is reporting that one of her staffers has tested positive for COVID-19.
Just before the Senator was scheduled to land in Asheville, the campaign released the news. According to a press release, late Wednesday night, two individuals involved in the campaign tested positive for COVID-19: a non-staff flight crew member and Liz Allen, communications director to Senator Harris.
“Neither of these people have had contact with Vice President Biden, Senator Harris or any other staffers since testing positive or in the 48 hours prior to their positive test results.”
Senator Harris was not in close contact, as defined by the CDC, with either of these individuals during the two days prior to their positive tests; as such, there is no requirement for quarantine. Regardless, out of an abundance of caution and in line with our campaign’s commitment to the highest levels of precaution, the campaign is canceling Senator Harris’s travel through Sunday, October 18th.
