Doug Emhoff, Husband Of Kamala Harris, Continues Campaigning In Colorado

(CBS4) - A political rally featuring Doug Emhoff, husband of Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, was held at dusk Thursday in a parking lot of Denver East High School. A stage was set up on one end of the lot and all of the attendees were inside their vehicles in order to prevent any spread of COVID.

It involved lots of honking among the relatively small number of people invited to attend.

It was one of two events Emhoff is in Colorado for. On Friday he is scheduled to take part in a town hall-style meeting about health care in Colorado Springs. He'll be joined by State Sen. Pete Lee for the event.
