Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband are moving into their official residence after lengthy repairs forced the couple to live in the president’s guest quarters, a senior administration official told NBC News on Tuesday.
The Naval Observatory has traditionally been the home of the Vice President, but Harris and Second Mister Doug Emhoff have not lived there since it opened.
The Vice President and Emhoff stayed at the Blair House, near the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue, while the Naval Observatory undergoes renovations. But a moving van was spotted outside Blair House on Tuesday night.
When this project started it was expected that it would only take a few weeks, but it spanned two months. An official said repairs are “more easily done with the house unoccupied.” The White House said the nature of the renovations included chimney work, maintenance and general floor repairs.
