Big news! Joe Biden has chosen Kamala Harris as his running mate, his campaign announced today. Kamala Harris is a California Senator who has smashed glass ceilings and already made history, and this moment only multiplies her barrier-breaking moments. If elected, Kamala Harris would be the first female, Black, Asian American vice president.
If you subscribe to Biden’s campaign emails, you likely already read his powerful words regarding his “important decision.”
“You make a lot of important decisions as president. But the first one is who you select to be your Vice President. I’ve decided that Kamala Harris is the best person to help me take this fight to Donald Trump and Mike Pence and then to lead this nation starting in January 2021,” the email read.
“I need someone working alongside me who is smart, tough, and ready to lead. Kamala is that person,” Biden wrote in the email. “I need someone who understands the pain that so many people in our nation are suffering. Whether they’ve lost their job, their business, a loved one to this virus.”
“This president says he ‘doesn’t want to be distracted by it.’ He doesn’t understand that taking care of the people of this nation — all the people — isn’t a distraction — it’s the job,” Biden wrote. “Kamala understands that. I need someone who understands that we are in a battle for the soul of this nation. And that if we’re going to get through these crises — we need to come together and unite for a better America. Kamala gets that.”
