Vice President Kamala Harris touched down at San Francisco International Airport on Tuesday morning to attend two events in the city.

According to her calendar, the VP arrived at SFO at around 8:20 a.m. after spending the night in Los Angeles where she attended events supporting Congresswoman Karen Bass in her bid to become Mayor of Los Angeles.

Harris also attended a Democratic National Committee finance event Monday night.

Her first listed event in San Francisco shows the VP attending Fort Mason's Cowell Theater for a climate change talk with the A Matter of Degrees podcast at 3:15 p.m.

The discussion at the Cowell Theater with the podcast's hosts Dr. Leah Stokes and Dr. Katharine Wilkinson will be open to pre-credentialed media and livestreamed here.

The vice president will later speak at a Democratic National Committee finance event, where cash is typically raised for the party.

This event is at a private residence in an undisclosed city location and will start at around 5:10 p.m., according to her calendar.

The VP will leave San Francisco at around 6:25 p.m. and fly to Joint Base Andrews near Washington, D.C., arriving at around 2:10 a.m. Eastern Time.

Harris served as SF's DA from 2004 to 2011, she then served as California's Attorney General before later becoming a U.S. Senator representing California in 2017.
