Harris entered her new office building for the first time in her new role
Vice-President Kamala Harris has entered her new office building for the first time in her new role.
Harris was joined Wednesday by her husband, Doug Emhoff, as she entered the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which houses the vice-president's office and is located near the White House.
The marching band of her alma mater, Howard University, helped lead Harris' procession.
She was joined by her extended family and held hands with one of her young grandnieces, who was beaming and wearing a fur coat meant to mimic one Harris wore as a child.
Shouts of "We love you!" greeted her as she walked along the procession route.
She waved at White House staffers gathered to watch and gave one final wave to the crowd before entering the building.
