Karlie Kloss to appear at Biden campaign event

Kloss married Kushner’s brother Joshua in 2018 but has spoken of her political disagreements with her in-laws for years

Model Karlie Kloss, the sister-in-law of White House adviser Jared Kushner, will appear at a campaign event Thursday with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Kloss is set to appear with the former vice president and Girls Who Code Founder Reshma Saujani, according to People.com.

The event is focused on encouraging women and girls to go into STEAM, an expanded educational approach that emphasizes science, technology, engineering, art and math. The event "will highlight the important work that is happening with women in STEAM,” the Biden campaign said in a statement.

"For those who know Karlie, this event makes a lot of sense. She cares deeply about the future of women in STEAM and has always supported the candidates who stand for the issues she’s passionate about,” a source close to Kloss told the magazine.

Kloss married Kushner’s brother Joshua in 2018 but has spoken of her political disagreements with her in-laws for years. “I’m sure I’m not the only person in this country who does not necessarily agree with their family on politics,” she said on “Watch What Happens Live” in January.

“I voted as a Democrat in 2016 and I plan to do the same in 2020.”

The “Project Runway” host previously launched the initiative Kode With Klossy in 2015 to encourage young women to enter tech fields, according to People.
