Vice President Kamala Harris visited California Monday for a tour of Vandenberg Space Force Base before a fundraising stop.
Vandenberg Space Force Base is one of six possible locations for the U.S. Space Force's training and readiness command headquarters, known as "STARCOM." There is no timeline for a final decision.
The other candidates are Buckley SFB, Schriever SFB and Peterson SFB -- all of which are in Colorado -- and Florida's Patrick SFB. Site surveys are planned for late April and early May.
