Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband are moving into their official residence after protracted repairs forced the couple to live in the president’s guest quarters, a senior administration official said Tuesday.
The U.S. Naval Observatory in Northwest Washington is traditionally the home of the vice president, but Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, have not lived there since the inauguration.
Harris and Emhoff have been staying at Blair House, near the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue NW, while the Naval Observatory undergoes renovations. But a moving truck was spotted outside Blair House in recent days.
The project had been expected to take only a few weeks, but it has stretched out over two months. An official said the repairs are “more easily conducted with the home unoccupied.” The White House said the renovations include chimney work, maintenance and general floor repairs.
