Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) went to Milwaukee on Monday for her first in-person campaign stop as the Democratic vice presidential nominee.

Harris visited an International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers training facility and hosted a roundtable for Black business owners. Harris said Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden recognizes the importance of investing in entrepreneurs, and they both know small business owners are also "civic leaders. They hire locally. We see you. We understand you. We understand the significance of what you are in terms of the health and well-being of communities. We see the benefit for the entire country to invest in our small businesses and small business leaders."
