Biden picks Kamala Harris as running mate

That's a huge asset for Biden, and for voters.

He added: "Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau".

"I watch as dem take di tmbig banks, lift up working pipi, and protect women and pikin from abuse", e tweeted. "I was proud then, and I'm proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign".

In choosing Kamala Harris, Biden selected the candidate who had been the frontrunner among political handicappers and betting markets for months. Harris, who became the Senate's second Black woman in its history when she was elected in 2016, was always at the top of the list. Were Rice to ascend to the ticket, she would also likely prove a controversial target for Republicans, who appear eager to relitigate the 2012 attack on the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

Says Pierson, "At the ballot box, Americans will resoundingly reject the abysmal failures of Biden-Harris in favor of the America First strength of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence".

Harris is further to the left than Biden on political issues.

Former President Bill Clinton, Senate Minority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Jill Biden, the nominee's wife, lead the Tuesday slate, which also includes former acting U.S. Attorney General Sally Yates, who Trump fired early in his administration.

His campaign is expected to announce his decision as soon as Tuesday, but more likely Wednesday, the newspaper said, citing unnamed Democrats.

Trump said Harris had been "very, very nasty" to Biden during the primaries.

A source familiar with the campaign said Biden has informed his senior staff of his pick and another source familiar with the vetting process said Biden has started to make calls to candidates who did not get the position. It noted that Biden has missed previous deadlines to announce his pick, and that the timeline could "slip again".

One of her most notable cases was in questioning Brett Kavanaugh during his 2018 Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

Joe Biden has picked Kamala Harris to be his running mate in the 2020 USA election.

Former President Barack Obama also lauded the decision, saying Biden "nailed" it. "This is a good day for our country. Now lets'go win this thing".

She is the third female vice presidential nominee for a major party, after the groundbreaking but unsuccessful runs of Democrat Geraldine Ferraro in 1984 and Republican Sarah Palin in 2008.

Harris has become a key ally for Biden at a time when race has been thrust to the forefront of the campaign. Unrest, meanwhile, has emerged across the country as Americans protest racism and police brutality.

"That's why we must elect Joe Biden on November 3rd".
