Joe Biden picks Kamala Harris as his running mate
Joe Biden has named Kamala Harris as his running mate, making the California senator the first Black and South Asian American woman to run on a major political party's presidential ticket.

"I've decided that Kamala Harris is the best person to help me take this fight to Trump and Mike Pence and then to lead this nation starting in January 2021," the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee wrote in an email Tuesday.

The two are set to appear together for the first time for a speech Wednesday in Wilmington, Delaware. Biden's campaign has not yet said what time that speech will take place.

In selecting Harris, Biden adds to the Democratic ticket a former primary rival who centered her own presidential bid on her readiness to take on Donald Trump and show Americans she would fight for them. She rose to national prominence within the Democratic Party by interrogating Trump nominees during Senate hearings, from former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

RE: Joe Biden picks Kamala Harris as his running mate
Not very surprising - he picked the least controversial, middle of the road person with name recognition. who in this case happens to also be a young, mixed race woman of color, as well as someone whose "break out" campaign moment was criticizing him harshly, proving that he's already doing his best to put his message of reunification and working with people who have criticized him into practice.

It's not who I would have picked, but it's a very "Biden" pick.
