Along with the tweet he rolled out text message too stating, “Together, with you, we’re going to beat Trump.” Sen.
Kamala Harris the first black woman and first woman of Asian descent to be the nominee of the presidential ticket from a major party, and not just that apparently she is also the first California Democrat to reach that position.
Amidst the American protests against Racism and police brutality, choosing a woman of color could turn out to be highly beneficial for Bidden.
The decision might also be an acknowledgment to the open letter sent to Joe Bidden by 100 influential Black men. Without a second thought Black voters will be able to play a vital role in the elections against Donald Trump. Harris, who is an Indian American, has also been a former rival from to Joe Bidden from the Democratic primary.
Harris is one of the most prominent members of the Democratic Party and is highly familiar with the run of a national campaigns. She has launched her own campaign in January last year when she even organized a rally in her hometown Oakland with a slogan “Kamala Harris: for the people” – a progressive prosecutor. Although she was considered a strong contender for the presidential elections, she somehow dropped out of the contest in December 2019.
The response from RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel wasn’t really a positive one. Pointing at the previous statement made by Harris on private health insurance, taxes and her stand on police brutality Ronna said “These radical policies might be popular among liberals, but they are well outside the mainstream for most Americans.”
Joe Bidden has an experience of 8 years as a Vice President to Barack Obama and holds sufficient research and analysis to decide who will be the beneficial fit for the role of his running mate. Kamala Harris has been chosen by him after his thorough analysis since March when he first declared that his choice of Vice president Nominee would be a woman.
