Former San Francisco district attorney, California attorney general, and current California senator Kamala Harris has been selected as Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate, according to Biden’s own Twitter account. The news has been confirmed by NBC News, Bloomberg, and NPR

Born in the Bay at Kaiser Permanente Oakland Medical Center, Sen. Kamala Harris was the first Black, American-Indian woman to run for president, and only the second-ever Black woman elected to the Senate. This is a major historical landmark moment, as Harris is now the first Black woman on a major party’s national ticket. Her presidential campaign was not a huge sucess, as she did not win a single state primary, but she did offer some very progressive ideas.

But she is not as progressive as many of our readers would like. Her school truancy postions disproportionately prosecuted parents of color. As state attorney general, she fought to uphold many wrongful convictions obtained through evidence tampering and false testimony. As SFGate reports, Trump actually donated money to Harris’ campaign in 2011 and 2013!

The Vice Presidential Debate is scheduled for Wednesday, October 7, 2020.
