During her first solo and in-person campaign trip as Democratic vice presidential nominee, Kamala Harris met with Jacob Blake's family and legal team in Wisconsin on Monday, while Blake himself joined the meeting by phone. Harris voiced her support and express her concern for their "well-being and of course for their brother and son's well-being."

"I mean, they're an incredible family. And what they've endured, and they just do it with such dignity and grace. And you know, they're carrying the weight of a lot of voices on their shoulders," so Harris.
