It's official. Democratic nominee Joe Biden, following through on his vow to pick a female running mate, selected Kamala Harris as his vice presidential candidate on Tuesday (Aug. 11), marking the first Black, Asian American woman on a major party presidential ticket.
"I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate," Biden tweeted, announcing the news. "Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau. I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I'm proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign."
