Vice President Kamala Harris is spending more time in Los Angeles to avoid criticism for not addressing key issues, such as the US-Mexico border crisis.

Her lack of authority in negotiations and concerns about her position on Biden’s 2024 ticket have been raised.

She faces challenges in communicating effectively, and has struggled substantially across numerous polls. (Trending: Trump Responds To Biden’s Bombing In Yemen)

Harris remains confident about winning the election but acknowledges the need for hard work and participation in the democratic process.

“In a city full of celebrities and A-listers, Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff’s presence is hard to escape. For Harris, the temptation to abandon Washington, where she faces Republican derision and criticism within her own party, for downtime at home has been tough to satisfy in recent years,” The Los Angeles Times wrote.

“While President Biden has a near-weekly habit of returning home to neighboring Delaware, a taxpayer-funded cross-country journey to Los Angeles is more difficult to justify unless it is for official business. Harris’ excursions back to Los Angeles are frequently disguised as an event to celebrate a local small business or a stop to raise awareness about one of her legislative priorities, such as black maternal healthcare or reproductive rights,” they added.

“We’re going to have to earn our re-elect, there’s no doubt about it,” Harris said.

“It is absolutely right in a democracy with free and fair elections that the candidates, the people who want to continue in leadership, have to make their case and have to make it effectively. That means communicating in such a way that the message is received about our accomplishments and what we care about.”

“I have a great sense of duty and responsibility to do as much as I can, to be where the people are, and to not only speak with them but listen to them and let them know what we’ve accomplished,” Harris added.

“The Biden-Harris ticket is running neck and neck with Donald Trump. Why are you not 30 points ahead?” CBS’ Bill Whitaker asked.

“Bill, we’re going to win. Let me just tell you that. We’re going to win. I’m aware and I’m not saying it’s going to be easy. But we will win,” she said.

“You say that with such conviction,” Whitaker said.

“I have no doubt, but I also have no doubt it’s going to be a lot of work. And everyone’s going to have to participate. This is a democracy,” she said.

“I look at it more as let’s keep getting out there. And, as with any election, we got to make our case to the American people. That’s part of our responsibility. And that’s this process. And that’s what it is. And that’s a fair process.”
