Harris and Emhoff have lived temporarily in Blair House, the president’s guest room on Pennsylvania Avenue, across from the White House, since Harris took office. The vice president’s official residence is on the premises of the United States Naval Observatory, a couple of miles from the White House.
The delay in moving had left Harris increasingly annoyed, according to several people who spoke to CNN. “She’s frustrated,” an administration official told CNN earlier.
The 19th-century home in northwest Washington, DC, has been the vice president’s official residence since Walter Mondale took office, according to the White House.
Biden told a February CNN town hall that living in the White House is “very different” from the vice president’s residence, where he lived for eight years under the Obama administration.
“You can get out of a porch in the summer and jump into a pool and, you know, get to work,” Biden said of the Naval Observatory’s residence. “You can ride a bike and never leave the property and exercise.”
