Print up the “Biden Harris” bumper stickers.
Joe Biden says that he has selected a “serious fighter” as his Vice Presidential nominee, Senator Kamala Harris of California…a state Biden does not need help winning.
This is an historic pick as Harris is the first woman of color to be selected as a presidential running mate. Harris’s mother is of Indian dissent and her father is Jamaican.
During the first debate, Harris went after Biden on his record especially with African-Americans, specifically on busing.
This selection shows that Joe Biden does not hold grudges, according to pundits, and will put diehard Democrats at ease.
Harris, 55, is two decades younger than Biden who is questionable to make it through a second term. Internally, the Biden campaign thinks she can be president.
Harris is still a supporter of Medicare for all and civil rights issues. Senator Harris has a legal background as the attorney general for California.
Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor, was Biden’s other top pick and she has already sent her congratulations to Harris. Rice could become Biden’s Secretary of State if he is elected President.
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.
