The Road Show Begins: VP Harris, Jill Biden Promote Aid Plan

LAS VEGAS (AP) — From a vaccination site in the desert West to a school on the Eastern Seaboard, President Joe Biden's top messengers have led off an effort to highlight the benefits of his huge COVID relief plan.

Biden's surrogates — his vice president and wife among them — were on the road Monday, and the president himself will be heading out Tuesday.

The promotion roadshow began with Harris visiting a COVID-19 vaccination site and a culinary academy in Las Vegas and first lady Jill Biden touring a New Jersey elementary school.
