Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris of California dodged questions Monday during a trip to Wisconsin.
Harris visits the state to have a conversation with the family of Jacob Blake, who was shot by Kenosha police after resisting arrest, and to offer prepared remarks during a meeting with black business leaders in Milwaukee, according to the New York Post.
As the Milwaukee event reached its close, Democratic Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes tried to turn the microphone over to Harris so that the assembled reporters could ask her some questions.
“We are very honored, proud and lucky to have Senator, soon-to-be Vice President, Harris with us today, and I will pass it back over to you. I know you want to take some questions before you get out of here,” Barnes said.
He extended his arm to pass the microphone to Harris and kept holding it as the candidate made it clear she was not planning to touch it.
