DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Vice President Kamala Harris is scheduled to visit Durham later this week for public and private events, according to an announcement from the Democratic Party.

Harris is scheduled to highlight the Biden-Harris Administration's commitment to lowering costs through the Inflation Reduction Act. The Vice President will meet with seniors and advocates to discuss the administration's efforts to lower healthcare costs for people across the country. No other details have been released about the location at this time.

In addition, VP Harris is attending a ticket only event labeled "An Evening with Vice President Kamala Harris" and is ticket only attendance. It's scheduled to happen Thursday, September 1.

Tickets range from $10,000 to $50,000.

The NC Republican party issued this response on VP Harris' visit:

"Vice President Harris comes to North Carolina as one of the most unpopular and out of touch vice presidents in half a century, and her fundraising visit to Durham is just one more example of why that's the case. Instead of stumping for inflation creation bills at high-dollar fundraisers while most Durham residents are drowning in high prices, she should be visiting the southern border and doing something to stem the free flow of criminals and drugs into our communities. Her failed leadership is one more reminder to North Carolinians that our nation desperately needs a change of course."

This will be Vice President Harris' second time in Durham this year. She was in the Bull City in March for a talk about creating good-paying jobs.

She was also in Charlotte last month to discuss investments in affordable and high-speed internet.
