Former Vice President of the United States Joe Biden named Kamala Harris, a colored senator from California, as his vice presidential choice on Tuesday and brought an end to what seemed to be an ‘endless search’ for a Democratic partner to challenge the President in November.
“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,” Biden, 77, said on social his official Twitter handle.
“I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.”
The decision is an optimistic one as he aims to overthrow Donald Trump from the White House by garnering huge amount of votes through Harris.
Taking to Twitter shortly after the announcement, Harris confirmed that she was ‘honored’ to join Joe Biden as nominee for Vice President. She further added that she would “do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.”
Kamala Harris, 55, is a former rival for the Democratic presidential nomination. She is the first Black woman and the first person of Indian descent to be nominated for national office by a major party. She is also the fourth woman in U.S. history to be chosen for a presidential ticket.
