According to a report, following a year of struggles and missteps, Vice President Kamala Harris’ team is devising a reset to set her back on track in 2022.

Harris was a popular choice for vice president among Democrats ahead of the 2020 election and inspired many as the first woman and Black or Asian person to hold the office. Still, after just a few months in the White House, she didn’t seem to be living up to the job’s expectations.

Following a storm of high-profile staff departures, Harris has hired a veteran political operator, Jamal Simmons, as her communications director. She is seemingly showing a more united front at events with Biden after months of them often being separated, according to the Washington Post.

Her aides also hope that returning her to the campaign trail, stumping for Democrats ahead of the 2022 midterms, will remind voters of why she became popular in the first place, the newspaper expressed, citing several sources speaking anonymously.

She most famously stumbled on the issue of immigration last year after Biden named her border czar. After months in the role, it seemed like she was trying to avoid the U.S.-Mexico border, choosing instead to focus on other domestic issues. Her seeming lack of interest left her critics and supporters alike failing to understand her actions. She finally made one visit to El Paso, Texas, for a number of hours last summer following the heaps of pressure.

She has also struggled in interviews – most memorably on immigration – but more recently, she hesitated when asked how soon 500 million at-home coronavirus tests would be sent to American households, in keeping with a recent White House promise.

"They’ve been ordered," VP Harris told NBC’s Craig Melvin this week. "I have to look at the current information. I think it’s going to be by next week. But soon. Absolutely soon. And it is a matter of urgency for us."

This month she was given a microphone on an issue she appeared more comfortable with: voting rights. Before his speech in Atlanta on Tuesday, she introduced Biden with more comfort and confidence than she has on immigration and other issues.

"Years from now, our children and our grandchildren, they will ask us about this moment," she expressed earlier this week. "And let us tell them we secured the freedom to vote, that we ensured free and fair elections, and we safeguarded our democracy for them and their children."

For now, she faces an uphill battle as the voting bill appears unlikely to pass the filibuster threshold. However, her advisers are still hoping for a more solid second year in office for arguably the most watched VP in recent memory, according to the newspaper.
