Joe Biden Selected Kamala Harris As His Vice President!

It’s HAPPENING! The Democratic ticket will have Joe Biden as President and Kamala Harris as his VP running mate, elevating a charismatic blue-state senator. Read on for more about Joe Biden Kamala Harris 2020… reports that frontrunner Joe Biden has announced that he has finally chosen Kamala Harris as his running-mate.

Biden wrote in a tweet Tuesday:

I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate.

Following the announcement, in her own tweet, Harris called joining Biden’s ticket an honor.

Biden wrote:

[She] can unify the American people because he’s spent his life fighting for us. And as president, he’ll build an America that lives up to our ideals. I’m honored to join him as our party’s nominee for Vice President and do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.

Harris will be the first woman, the first Asian American and the first Black vice president if elected.

And Biden’s barrier-breaking pick comes at a time of racial reckoning in the country, plunging one of the best-known women of color in politics into a contest against President Donald Trump, who has stoked racial divisions from the White House and on the campaign trail.

Former President Barack Obama had this to say about Biden choosing Kamala as his VP:

Politico reports:

Biden prioritized choosing a running mate with whom he was “simpatico,” as he frequently said, and his monthslong search narrowed the list to a handful of women the campaign believed could help energize Democrats in the homestretch of the campaign. In Harris, Biden is hoping to combine both of his priorities, finding a thrilling campaigner as well as a long-term governing partner.

Harris, 55, has also built a personal rapport with Biden, and she was close with his late son Beau, a fellow former state attorney general. But Harris had to survive concerns inside the Biden campaign about whether she could be a trusted partner in the job, after a bitter primary clash and a searing debate broadside by Harris strained relationships between their allies.

Biden nodded at Harris’ relationship with his son in announcing his selection Tuesday.

He said of the pair:

I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.

Harris has faced persistent criticism for her prosecutorial record, including concerns she was too cautious to lead on sweeping changes. Her embrace in recent years of far-reaching changes has won over some skeptics, and she helped steer Democratic efforts to pass police reform this summer. A child of the Civil Rights Movement, whose parents were active in 1960s marches, Harris joined Black Lives Matter demonstrations this summer.
