Joseph R. Biden Jr, popularly known as Joe Biden has selected Senator Harris Kamala of California as his vice-presidential running mate to battle Donal and Mike Pence in the November 2020 elections.

Harris, 55 is the first black woman and the first person of Indian origin to be nominated for a national office by a major party in the US. She is also the only fourth woman in the history of American politics to be selected for one of their presidential tickets

Harris brings to the race a far more vigorous campaign-style than Mr. Biden’s, including a gift for capturing moments of raw political electricity on the debate stage and elsewhere, and a personal identity and family story that many find inspiring.

Joe Biden announced the news over a text message and in an email to his supporters. The message read’

Harris Kamala and Joe Biden

 “Joe Biden here. Big news: I’ve chosen Kamala Harris as my running mate. Together, with you, we’re going to beat Trump.” Joe and Harris are expected to appear together in Wilmington, Del., on Wednesday.

In her acceptance response as Joe’s presidential running mate Kamala wrote’

“I am coming to you today with some big news: I’m honored to join Joe Biden in the fight for the soul of our country as the Democratic Vice Presidential Nominee. Joe is a leader who can unify the American people because he’s spent his life fighting for the American people. And as president, he will build an America that lives up to our ideals.
My mom and dad, like so many other immigrants, came to this country for an education. My mother from India and my dad from Jamaica. And the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s brought them together. Some of my earliest memories are from that time: My parents being attacked by police with hoses, fleeing for safety, with me strapped tightly in my stroller.
That spirit of activism is why my mother, Shyamala, would always tell my sister and me, “Don’t just sit around and complain about things. Do something.”
That’s why I became a District Attorney and fought to fix a broken system from within. Why I served as California’s Attorney General. Why I’m proud to represent my state as a U.S. Senator. And it’s why, today, I’m humbled to be joining Joe Biden in the battle to defeat Donald Trump and build a country that lives up to our values of truth, equality, and justice.
I know that winning this race will be tougher than anything I’ve faced before, but I’ve never been more ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work. Donald Trump thinks this country belongs to him. But Joe Biden knows it belongs to all of us. To the people.
And together, the people are going to take it back”.

The Trump campaign team responded to Ms. Harris’s selection by Joe with a statement that read,

“proof that Joe Biden is an empty shell being filled with the extreme agenda of the radicals on the left.” Katrina Pierson, a spokeswoman for the campaign said.

“Clearly, Phony Kamala will abandon her own morals, as well as try to bury her record as a prosecutor, in order to appease the anti-police extremists controlling the Democrat Party,” Ms. Pierson said.
