Vice President Kamala Harris may emerge from last week's midterm elections as a winner after she supported a slew of successful Democratic candidates in what had been expected to be a tough year for the party.

Harris made numerous campaign appearances with candidates who went on to win their races, including Representative Karen Bass in the Los Angeles mayor's race and Josh Shapiro in the battle for governor of Pennsylvania.

The vice president's efforts have won praise on social media, with some pointing to the high success rate of Democrats she publicly supported.

"For all of the 'where is the vice president?' talk, too few people realize that she spent the weeks ahead of the midterms visiting universities across the country and helping turn out the GenZ vote," tweeted Eugene Scott, national political reporter at The Washington Post.
