Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that he had chosen Senator Kamala Harris as vice president.
The 55-year-old could be the first female vice president if Biden defeats President Donald Trump at the polls.
“I have the great honor to announce that I have chosen @KamalaHarris – a fearless fighter for the little guy and one of the best public servants in the country – as my running mate.
“Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau. I watched them take on the big banks, uplift workers, and protect women and children from abuse. I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have him as a partner in this campaign, ”Biden tweeted.
