President Joe Biden still plans to travel to California to help Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom survive a recall election.
‘He will be,’ White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on board Air Force One Tuesday when asked if Biden will still make the trip. ‘I expect we’ll have more to report to all of you, or announce, on a trip he’ll take next week early next week later today.’
Vice President Kamala Harris is due to appear with Newsom on Wednesday, rescheduling a trip she was supposed to take last month, which was put off after 13 American troops were killed in a terror attack by ISIS-K outside Kabul’s airport in Afghanistan.

Biden will be on hand to make a final push for Newsom before the September 14 recall election wraps up.
The latest polls show Newsom is on track to survive the recall effort, which was hatched by Republicans over his coronavirus restrictions.
On the ballot, California voters are being asked should Newsom be recalled and who should replace him.
California’s Democratic Party is instructing voters to vote ‘no’ on the first question and leave the second question blank.
If more than 50 per cent of voters vote ‘yes’ on the first question, the top vote-getter then becomes governor.
FiveThirtyEight.com’s compilation of polls show 53 per cent of California voters support keeping Newsom, versus the 42.6 per cent who want to remove him.
Among the Republicans running to replace Newsom, surveys show conservative talk show host Larry Elder has the best shot.
However, Elder has made a number of controversial statements in recent days, including that slave owners could be entitled reparations.
‘Their legal property was taken away from them after the Civil War, so you could make an argument that the people that are owed reparations are not only just Black people but also the people whose “property” was taken away after the end of the Civil War,’ Elder said on Prager University’s The Candace Owens Show.
Democrats have tried to nationalize the election, with former 2020 presidential hopefuls, Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar, stumping for Newsom over the weekend.
On Saturday, Warren urged voters not to replace Newsom with ‘California’s own Donald Trump.’

‘It comes down to you, California. Voting yes in this recall election means installing Larry Elder as governor,” Warren said, according to the LA Times. ‘Voting yes means installing one more Republican governor to undercut women, one more Republican governor to put our children at risk, one more Republican governor to grease the skids for the fossil fuel industry to destroy our planet.’
Klobuchar appeared with Newsom on Sunday.
And pro-Newsom ads have also featured Sen. Bernie Sanders, a favorite among the left flank of the Democratic Party.
Newsom got in trouble politically over the slew of restrictions he enacted to combat the coronavirus. At the same time, the governor got caught attending a birthday party at the tony French Laundry restaurant in the Napa Valley, when he was advising Californians to stay home.
A judge also granted an extension to recall supporters, allowing them more time to gather signatures, which is how Newsom is now on the ballot.
Vote-by-mail ballots started getting sent out on August 16.
