MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (CNS) -- Vice President Kamala Harris is scheduled to spend just over 4 1/2 hours in Sacramento Thursday to speak at two receptions, then return to Los Angeles.

Harris is set to speak at a California State Legislature Democratic Caucus reception and a campaign reception.

On Wednesday, Harris told those gathered at a late-afternoon campaign fundraiser in Manhattan Beach that she intends "to be on the road full time for the next 10 months to do what needs to be done."

With former President Donald Trump on track for the Republican nomination for president and a rematch with the Joe Biden/Harris Democratic ticket later this year, Harris told supporters at the home of Moez Kaba and Bjorn Lundberg that "everything is at stake this election."

"It is about the foundation of democracy and our democratic principles," she said. "It is a fight for our nation and what we stand for."

Harris arrived Wednesday afternoon at Los Angeles International Airport from Joint Base Andrews near Washington and was greeted by L.A. Mayor Karen Bass and Reps. Judy Chu, D-Monterey Park, Grace Napolitano, D-Norwalk, and Maxine Waters, D-Los Angeles.

After 10 minutes on the ground, Harris' motorcade headed for Manhattan Beach.

Vice President Kamala Harris on Monday toured the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator to tout efforts to build a robust "clean energy economy."
