Sen. Kamala Harris touched down at Asheville Regional Airport in Arden, North Carolina at 10:27 a.m.  

A reporter asked Harris about her trip. She likely didn’t hear the question and entered a vehicle to depart the airport for an event in Asheville. 

North Carolina remains an important battleground state for presidential candidates. In 2008, Barack Obama won the state by less than one-third of one percent. In 2016, Donald Trump won it by 3.6 points. Polls here have consistently been neck-and-neck between Trump and Vice President Biden. 

The motorcade is rolling.

Harris will deliver remarks at an outdoor early vote launch event. 

Members of the Grammy Award-winning Asheville-based band, Steep Canyon Rangers, provide musical entertainment to a small group of about 25 people.

The event at UNC-Asheville is underway. 

Student Sarah Gurbach introduced Sen. Harris after Asheville Mayor Esther Manheimer spoke on the importance of early voting. Manheimer also mentioned the importance of transparency and leadership in the White House.

Sen. Harris continued to hammer campaign talking points during her 15-minute outdoor speech at UNC-Asheville while encouraging those who have not already done so to vote. 

She lamented the still-languishing HEROES Act, the rushed confirmation process of Amy Coney Barrett and the reproductive rights of women, which Harris believes are in jeopardy. 

Attendees were masked and socially distanced. 

Harris concluded her remarks at 12:11 p.m. 

The motorcade is rolling back to Asheville Regional Airport.
