WASHINGTON (CBS SF) – Vice President Kamala Harris has not yet moved in to her new residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, DC, as repairs are being made.
Following Harris’ historic inauguration on Wednesday, an aide told CBS News that the delay would “allow for repairs to the home that are more easily conducted with the home unoccupied.” Outgoing Vice President Mike Pence had been living in the home with his family.READ MORE: Bay Area Health Workers Cheer Newly-Approved 1-Shot Johnson & Johnson Vaccine
