Kamala Harris Issues Statement After Being Picked as Biden’s Running Mate

Moments ago, Senator Kamala Harris responded to being picked as Joe Biden’s VP nominee.

Harris wrote:

.@JoeBiden can unify the American people because he’s spent his life fighting for us. And as president, he’ll build an America that lives up to our ideals.

I’m honored to join him as our party’s nominee for Vice President, and do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.

Earlier Tuesday, before Biden’s pick was announced Harris wrote:

Black women and women of color have long been underrepresented in elected office and in November we have an opportunity to change that. Let’s get to work.
