WASHINGTON – Democratic candidate for the United States (US) from the Democratic Party Joe Biden has appointed Senator Kamala Harris of California as vice chair. The announcement was made by Biden through his Twitter account. In his tweet, former Vice President Barack Obama said he had the privilege of working with Harris. She describes her as a fearless warrior for the little one and one of America’s best officials. He noticed how Harris worked closely with his late son, Beau, when he was Attorney General of California.
“I saw them take over the big banks, raise workers and protect women and children from abuse,” he tweeted.
“At the time, I was proud, and now I am proud to have him as a partner in this campaign,” he added, quoted by the BBC on Wednesday (08/12/2020).
Biden and Harris Aim For A Better America
Biden and Harris will give a speech in Wilmington, Delaware on Wednesday afternoon local time about working together to restore the soul of the nation and fight for working families to move the country forward.
Once a rival for first place, the Californian senator of Indian-Jamaican descent has long been considered to be the head of the vice president of the Democratic Party. The former California attorney general has pushed for police reform amid anti-racism protests. Harris, 55, resigned from the Democratic Party’s presidential candidacy in December.
He has clashed with Biden on several occasions during the debate over the Democratic Party’s presidential candidates, criticizing in particular his praise for the “civilian” working relationship he had with former pro-segregation senators. A woman of color has never been nominated for a presidential ticket by any of America’s two major political parties. No woman has won the US presidency.
Only two other women were nominated as running mate – Sarah Palin by the Republican Party in 2008 and Geraldine Ferraro by the Democrats in 1984. But neither of them made it to the White House. Harris was born in Oakland, California to two immigrant parents: a mother born in India and a father born in Jamaica.
He then attended Howard University, one of the leading black colleges and universities in the country’s history. She describes her time there as one of the most formative experiences of her life. After four years with Howard, Harris received his law degree from the University of California, Hastings and began his career in the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office.
She became District Attorney – Supreme Attorney – of San Francisco in 2003, before being elected the first woman and the first African American to become California Attorney General, attorney, and law enforcement official in the state. most populous in America. In nearly two terms as attorney general, Harris built a reputation as one of the rising stars of the Democratic Party, using that momentum to propel his candidacy for the junior U.S. senator to California in 2017. Harris said he was still comfortable with his identity and only described himself as “American.” In 2019, he told the Washington Post that politicians should not be allowed into compartments because of their color or origin.
