and her husband, second gentleman Doug Emhoff, will temporarily move to Blair House; which is near the White House, before moving to the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory, according to an aide for Harris.
Seven vice presidents have called Number One Observatory Circle their home while in office; beginning with Vice President Walter Mondale.
The house located at the U.S. Naval Observatory is not open to the public and is just a few miles from the White House.
A report that Harris and her husband would not immediately move into the vice president’s residence; due to “repairs to the residence that are more easily conducted with the home unoccupied.”
According to an aide, some of the repairs include replacing liners in the chimneys; and “other household maintenance.” The requests didn’t originate with either Harris or Emhoff, but rather, from the Navy.
The vice president’s office did not specify how long Harris and Emhoff would stay at their new temporary home.
