Joe Biden Taps Kamala Harris For VP

Joe Biden has finally announced his vice presidential running mate – California Senator Kamala Harris.

With the choice, Biden keeps his promise to select a woman as his running mate, while Harris makes history as the first-ever African American woman to run for vice president on a major party ticket.

In an email to supporters, Biden said “I need someone working alongside me who is smart, tough, and ready to lead.  Kamala is that person.”

Biden and Harris will make their first official appearance as running mates on Wednesday at a virtual fundraiser in Biden’s home state of Delaware. Was Harris the right choice?
