Kamala Harris met with Jacob Blake’s family in Wisconsin

Kamala Harris met with Jacob Blake’s family in Wisconsin

Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris on Monday met with members of Jacob Blake’s family in Wisconsin, according to a report.

Harris (D-Calif.) reportedly met with Jacob Blake Sr. and two of Blake’s sisters — four days after her running mate, presidential candidate Joe Biden, also met with the family as he visited riot-ravaged Kenosha, where Blake was shot by a police officer Aug. 23.

The California senator is visiting the swing state in a rare campaign stop, as her Republican opponent, Vice President Mike Pence, also makes a Labor Day trip to the state’s Mississippi River city of La Crosse.

Harris’ private meeting with the Blake family was reported by Axios, citing a campaign official. Biden campaign spokespeople did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Post.

Blake’s mother, Julia Jackson, reportedly was on the phone. The report does not say if Blake, who is recovering in a hospital, was a participant, though he spoke last week with Biden.

On Monday, Harris will tour an International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers facility in Milwaukee and host a roundtable with black Milwaukee business owners.

President Trump toured Kenosha last week but did not meet with members of Blake’s family.
