Biden picks Senator Harris as his choice for VP

Biden picks Senator Harris as his choice for VP

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday picked Senator Kamala Harris as his choice for vice president, according to a media report.

This makes Harris the first Black woman on a major-party US presidential ticket and giving him a partner well prepared to go on the attack against Republican President Donald Trump.

With social unrest over racial injustice rocking the country for months, Biden had been under increasing pressure to select a Black woman as his running mate. Harris is also the first Asian-American on a major presidential ticket.

In Harris, a 55-year-old senator from California who made her own run for the White House, Biden gains an experienced politician already battle-tested by the rigors of the 2020 presidential campaign as they head into the final stretch of the November 3 election.

Biden on Twitter called Harris “a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants.” Harris wrote on Twitter that Biden could “unify the American people because he’s spent his life fighting for us.”
