Our very first Second Gentleman was in Des Moines this week. Vice President Kamala Harris' huband Doug Emhoff was in town this week. Lucky Lotus on Ingersoll posted a picture of the Second Gentleman at Lucky Lotus on Instagram.
Emhoff was in town promoting the COVID relief bill with U. S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and Iowa U. S. Senator Cindy Axne. They toured the Food Bank of Iowa and talked about a 15% increase in SNAP benefits.
The Second Gentleman is no stranger to Des Moines. In 2019, while his wife, Vice President Harris, was campaigning for President, they rented a home and prepared Thanksgiving dinner here in Des Moines.
