The Democratic vice presidential candidate, Senator Kamala Harris, D-California, had an awkward moment during a virtual campaign event in North Carolina on Thursday when she and an employee broke out in laughter amid a serious push for people to vote.
“So my last point is this: This election will end in 19 days,” Harris said with a smile sweeping across her face. “Yes, that’s what I said. Kamala did you say it ends in 19 days? Yes, I did, I said it ends in 19 days.” At the time, Harris seemed to be fighting laughter.

“Because you’re watching North Carolina, the early voting begins today, October 15,” she continued, as a male voice from the camera can be heard laughing. “So we want you to start voting. October 15. We want you to start voting and vote early.”
Personal early voting in North Carolina runs from October 15 to October 31. Mail-in voting began when ballots began to go out to voters on September 4th. North Carolina was the first state to send ballots to voters.

Forest went after Cooper for restrictions he imposed to counter the coronavirus pandemic, which included keeping bars and gyms closed longer than other states.
