Kamala Harris is already well-known on the national stage, especially after her own run for president. Now the task is to join her vision with Joe Biden’s as the pair takes on president Trump.
It’s a run for the White House that’s already making history with the first Black woman on a major party ticket. Harris is a U.S. Senator from California and that state’s former attorney general. She’s the daughter of immigrants from India and Jamaica. She’s also more than 20 years younger than Biden and is already injecting enthusiasm into the campaign and boosting donations.
Team Biden is also counting on the senator’s strong and confrontational style against President Trump, who has already accused her of being “nasty” and “disrespectful” to Biden while they were running against each other during the presidential primaries.
The president tweeted Wednesday she’s “the kind of opponent everyone dreams of” while many Democrats are calling her a dream running mate for Biden.
Wednesday’s joint appearance is a preview of the big show ahead as the Democratic National Convention kicks off online next week.
