Biden picks Kamala Harris as VP nominee

Harris, the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India, was the wire-to-wire frontrunner for Biden’s No. 2 job.

Joe Biden has selected Sen. Kamala Harris to be his running mate, elevating a charismatic blue-state senator, former prosecutor and onetime 2020 primary rival who has built a reputation as an unyielding antagonist of the Trump administration.

Harris, the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India, was the wire-to-wire frontrunner for Biden’s No. 2 job. Her experience as a battle-tested presidential candidate, her efforts leading major law enforcement offices and her political track record of three election wins in California helped her overcome a crowded list of contenders.

Harris will be the first woman and the first Black vice president if elected. And Biden’s barrier-breaking pick of her comes at a time of racial reckoning in the country, plunging one of the best-known women of color in politics into a contest against President Donald Trump, who has stoked racial divisions in the White House and on the campaign trail.

    Actually, this is just a big yawn for me. Really don’t care who was selected as Biden’s running mate. And by the way, I don’t think he picked her; she was picked for him.

    I’m just glad the big mystery and suspense is finally over. Boring!

    “LOL Trump and Ivanka donated to Harris’ campaign in 2013/2014”

    That was before Trump “evolved.” Ha-ha-ha!
