Joe Biden has selected Senator Kamala Harris of California to be his vice-presidential running mate, making her the first Black woman and the first Indian American to be on a major party presidential ticket. Biden and Harris are scheduled to make their first joint appearance today in Wilmington, Delaware. In a tweet, Biden described Harris as a “fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants.” Kamala Harris has served in the Senate since 2017. She previously served as California’s attorney general for six years and as district attorney of San Francisco for seven years. While Harris has been credited with pushing criminal justice reform in the Senate, she has been criticized for her record as a prosecutor in California. Harris is the daughter of immigrants, her father from Jamaica, her mother from India. We’ll have much more on Kamala Harris after headlines.
