Joe Biden picks Kamala Harris as running mate; here’s what we know about her

Joe Biden the Democratic presidential candidate for the upcoming U.S elections has named Kamala Harris as his running mate.

Harris is a 55-year-old mother of two who made history in 2016 when she became the first Black woman elected to the US Senate from California, a political position she still holds the State’s senator.


Kamala, a lawyer as well, was born in Oakland, California, to two immigrant parents: an Indian-born mother and Jamaican-born father, hence, her description as a woman of colour.

Joe Biden officially announced Harris as his pick this evening and speaking about her, he described her as “a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants“.

 

Former President Barrack Obama has also commented on Joe’s choice, saying in a press statement that Biden nailed his choice.

 

Breaking her silence after Joe’s announcement which is gaining wild attention on social media, the California Senator said “I’m honored to join him as our party’s nominee for Vice President, and do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.”

 

Should Donald Trump lose the November 3rd elections, Harris will become the first female vice president of the U.S because only two other women have been nominated as VP candidates – Sarah Palin by the Republican party in 2008 and Geraldine Ferraro by the Democrats in 1984 but neither made it to the White House.

Kamala was among the US senators who wore a stole of Kente over their outfits to protest the killing of George Floyd by police officers during a violent arrest.
