Democrats Praise Biden’s Decision to Choose Harris as His VP

Reactions to presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s vice presidential announcement are pouring in. 

On Tuesday afternoon, Biden revealed that he had selected Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) to be his running mate, as IJR reported.

“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked [Kamala Harris] — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate,” Biden said in a tweet announcing his decision.

He added, “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.”

Shortly after the announcement, Democrats took to Twitter to hail the decision:

Harris and Biden competed for their party’s nomination until December, 2019 when she announced she would suspend her campaign.

In March, Harris endorsed Biden for president and vowed to do “everything in my power to help elect him the next President of the United States.”

“I believe in Joe. I really believe in him and I have known him for a long time…I am supporting Joe because I believe that he is a man who has lived his life with great dignity,” she added.

Biden and Harris’ first event as a ticket is scheduled to take place in Wilmington, Delaware, on Wednesday.
