Sen. Kamala Harris was caught on a hot mic asking an aide what city she was in before greeting supporters at a campaign stop in Ohio on Saturday.
Footage captured by C-SPAN showed the Democratic vice presidential candidate turning to a staffer and asking, “Are we in Cleveland?”
After apparently getting confirmation of her location in the swing state, the California lawmaker said: “Hey, Cleveland, it’s Kamala!”
The cringe-worthy clip circulated on social media, with retweeters including President Trump’s son Eric Trump.
Harris’ visit to the Buckeye State — which came 10 days ahead of the presidential election — included an appearance at Cuyahoga Community College, where she urged voters to cast their ballots for her running mate Joe Biden.
In her remarks, she accidentally misstated the US coronavirus death toll, saying COVID-19 had killed “over 220 million” Americans instead of 224,000, another clip showed.
The senator rescheduled the Cleveland trip after canceling a week earlier because two of her staffers had tested positive for COVID-19, local outlets reported.
While greeting voters lined up outside the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, Harris told them: “You are going to make the difference!”
“You are going to make the decision about your future, about your family’s future. It is through the voice of your vote, and you have the power,” she said, according to local outlet WKYC-TV.
“The power is with the people, and you know that. That’s why you’re standing in this line today, and I just came to say thank you!”
