Harris talked with Breed and Schaaf at the bottom of the steps, lasting several minutes.
“It was about the things that are important to San Francisco. Just catching her up on the happenings here and asking her for her help,” Breed said.
“Elections matter more than ever, and we talked about how we all have work to do on these midterms,” Schaaf said.

Before taking that ride, Harris spoke with NBC Bay Area about why it’s important to connect with leaders of local government.
“One of the things the president and I have always taken pride in we both started in local government and always coordinated collaborated and relied on the perspective of mayors of America,” Harris told NBC Bay Area’s Cheryl Hurd. “To see them and to talk about all of the work we have done and all the work we have yet to do is important so, I’m glad to be here and it’s good to be back in the Bay,”
