The reviews are pouring in and are roundly good for California Sen. Kamala Harris as Joe Biden's running mate. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: "Joe Biden’s naming of Sen. Kamala Harris as the Democratic nominee for Vice President marks an historic & proud milestone for our country. As the Vice President of the United States, Senator Harris will continue her legacy of trailblazing leadership to move our nation forward. […] Now we must ensure the historic election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as President and Vice President of the United States."

Others who were under consideration for the position are just as laudatory. Stacey Abrams tweeted "Thrilled to support @KamalaHarris as next VP. I was honored to speak with @JoeBiden
at length over the weekend and again today. His focus on reaching out to every corner of our country speaks to how he will lead us. I look forward to doing all I can for Team #BidenHarris!"

Rep. Karen Bass tweeted that Harris is "a great choice for Vice President. Her tenacious pursuit of justice and relentless advocacy for the people is what is needed right now." Ambassador Susan Rice writes "Senator Harris is a tenacious and trailblazing leader who sill make a great partner on the campaign trail. […] I look forward to supporting the Biden-Harris ticket with all my energy and commitment."

And Rep. Jim Clyburn on MSNBC: "I am ecstatic. We are breaking ground here. I think he has chosen well." That's as well said as can be.
