U.S. Rep. Cindy Axne will join Doug Emhoff, husband of Kamala Harris, at Friday afternoon's Get Out the Vote rally in Perry, where satellite voting is available Thursday and Friday from 2-8 p.m. at the McCreary Community Building, 1800 Pattee St. in Perry.

U.S. Rep. Cindy Axne will join Doug Emhoff, husband of Kamala Harris, at Friday afternoon’s Get Out the Vote rally in Perry, where satellite voting is available Thursday and Friday from 2-8 p.m. at the McCreary Community Building, 1800 Pattee St. in Perry.

Emhoff, whose wife today suspended her vice presidential campaign until Monday after two members of her staff tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, will greet local voters in order to fire up supporters and volunteers as the Biden-Harris campaign heads into the final stretch.

Axne announced today a third-quarter fundraising total of more than $1.52 million with 21 days to the Nov. 3 general election. Axne’s Republican opponent, David Young of Van Meter, raised some $773,000 during the same period. Each candidate now has about $1.5 million cash on hand.

“Grab your mask and get ready,” said Perry-Area Democrats Director Monica Peitz. “We want to see your excitement to elect great Democrats up and down the ticket here in Iowa! Doug’s team will be following social-distancing and mask requirements — you know, keeping it safe!”
