DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Vice President Kamala Harris is in the Bull City for two events. She made her first appearance Thursday afternoon at the Durham Center for Senior Life.

Harris highlighted the administration's commitment to lowering costs through the Inflation Reduction Act.

She also spoke about lower health care costs for seniors.

Before her speech Harris toured the Durham Center for Senior Life and spoke with seniors about health care cost they have encountered.

"The medications that I am on now...It's ridiculous," Clyde Perry said. "I don't think it can get any worse than it is now."

Later Vice President Harris attended a ticket only fundraiser hosted by the Democratic Party.

The NC Republican Party released a statement on her visit saying in part, "Instead of stumping for inflation creation bills at high-dollar fundraisers ... she should be doing something to stem the free flow of criminals and drugs into our communities."

This is the second time this year Harris has visited Bull City. She was here in March to talk about creating good paying jobs.
