As the final score showed the FAMU Rattlers defeating Howard Bison 30-26, Harris was also seen on the screen smiling and clapping.
On the way back to the airport for the return flight, the Vice President’s motorcade stopped at the Busy Bee Café. The historic soul food restaurant was recently honored with a James Beard Foundation Award.
Harris pointed to slices of sweet potato pie on the shelf, saying she was hoping to buy a slice. She said her sister was craving the restaurant’s banana pudding. She left with orders for her family and staff that included staples like smothered pork chops, collard greens, and macaroni and cheese.
Before returning to her car, Harris told the assembled reporters that she enjoys taking trips to Georgia where she can directly thank voters for helping elect her and President Joe Biden in 2020.
“I just got back from an absolutely amazing football game; unfortunately, my Bison team did not win. But President Biden and I were able to invest over $7 billion in our historically black colleges. We installed high-speed internet,” she said. “It’s affordable and accessible to all people, including people who live in rural America and rural Georgia. So, the first thing I wanted to say is thank you to the people of Georgia.”
