RALEIGH — Vice President Kamala Harris and U.S. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh will travel to Durham on Wednesday, according to a media advisory issued by the Vice President’s press office. 

The purpose of the visit is to “discuss the Biden-Harris administration’s investments in our workers to create good-paying, union jobs.” 

A time or location for the visit has not been provided as of Tuesday afternoon. 

Many members of the Biden administration are fanning out across the country following Tuesday night’s State of the Union address to tout President Joe Biden’s agenda.

“Kamala Harris and Marty Walsh’s visit to North Carolina today is one more example of the Biden administration trying to use political theater to distract from the sky-high inflation affecting North Carolina workers. Despite what Harris and Walsh want us to believe, the reason real-wages are down for workers is due to Bidenflation, not the drop in union membership,” said RNC spokeswoman Alex Nolley in a response to Harris’ visit.
