(Tea Party 247) – On Tuesday, after much delay, the Biden campaign finally announced their pick for the former Vice President’s own VP should he manage to win the presidential election.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), a one-time primary opponent to Biden, who has a very dubious history both personally and politically.
Joe Biden has selected Sen. Kamala Harris to be his running mate, elevating a charismatic blue-state senator, former prosecutor and onetime 2020 primary rival who has built a reputation as an unyielding antagonist of the Trump administration.
Harris, the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India, was the wire-to-wire frontrunner for Biden’s No. 2 job. Her experience as a battle-tested presidential contender, her efforts leading major law enforcement offices and her political track record of three election wins in California helped her overcome a crowded list of contenders.
The announcement was also made on Biden’s official Twitter account.
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.

While the Trump campaign came out quickly with an attack ad slamming the “phony” Harris, who is well-known for her inauthenticity and insatiable quest for power, Wikileaks was also ready with some dirt on the former California Attorney General.
