Doug Emhoff, husband of Vice President Kamala Harris, to visit Omaha on Tuesday

After opening his presidency by playing down expectations for combating the pandemic, President Joe Biden and his top messengers are touring the country to raise hopes over his $1.9 trillion relief package.

Emhoff’s Omaha visit is part of the “Help Is Here Tour” to tout the American Rescue Plan, the $1.9 trillion economic stimulus package recently signed by President Joe Biden.

Emhoff and Jill Biden, Biden’s wife, came to Papillion on Sept. 26 to promote their spouses’ campaign. Joe Biden ended up winning the single Electoral College vote of Nebraska’s 2nd District, which is made up of all of Douglas County and the western half of Sarpy County.

Emhoff also is scheduled to visit St. Louis on Wednesday, the White House said.
