Vice Presidential presumptive nominee Joe Biden has chosen Sen. Kamala Harris of California as his running mate.
Her biography at Wikipedia states she was born in Oakland, Calif, and graduated from Howard University and the University of California Hastings College of Law. She became the San Francisco City Attorney and the Attorney General of California. Since 2017, she has served as the junior U.S. senator from California.
Although Sen. Elizabeth Warren raised more money for Biden’s campaign, she was not black, and therefore missed out on the coveted appointment, which many predicted would have to be a black nominee to satisfy the radical left.
Harris is not exactly African-American, of course. She is of Jamaican-American and Indian-American heritage.
Like Warren, Harris ran for president last year and for a time was considered a frontrunner. She withdrew in December of 2019, after running through all of her campaign funds and gaining no delegates.
The choice of a Californian is mystifying. She has no signature legislative achievement. She failed in her effort to block Brett Kavanaugh from the U.S. Supreme Court.
Biden has added someone to the ticket who has proven she can win California for him.
“A hiding, diminished, and incoherent Joe Biden didn’t just select a vice-presidential candidate, he chose the person who would actually be in charge the next four years if he is somehow able to win. Kamala Harris’ extreme positions, from raising taxes to abolishing private health insurance to comparing law enforcement officials to the KKK, show that the left-wing mob is controlling Biden’s candidacy, just like they would control him as president. These radical policies might be popular among liberals, but they are well outside the mainstream for most Americans,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.
For Alaska, Harris would be considered a problem, especially if she became president. She is opposed to personal firearms, and in favor of abortion rights. She supports universal government health care and opposes energy development.
