Democratic nominee Joe Biden, “unknowingly” revealed his pick for Vice President in this year’s upcoming election. It was Senator Kamala Harris.
Biden was seen holding Joseph R. Biden, Jr. paper filled with notes and the VP Tuesday during his midday press conference in Welmington, Delaware. One of the photos had a close-up shot of the notes he had on him, which featured a bullet-point list of topics and highlights … this included a dedicated section to Harris.
Not only was she in the VP section of Biden’s notepad Kamala was actually at the top of the notepad and her under her name was a list of things he wanted to address about the Senator … “Do Not Hold Grudges,” “Campaigned with her,” ‘Talented,” “Great Respect for Her.”
There were talks that Biden would pick Harris if he were nominated, but a lot of people thought that plan was cancelled after the Senator went after the former VP for his civil rights record during the first debate. With that being said, Harris is one of the many few contenders with experience, she was the D.A. in San Francisco and CA Attorney General.
But here is where things get interested, Biden’s top campaign adviser who’s helping other veteran candidates, Chris Todd, did not like the fact that she “no remorse” when confronted about the way she went after Joe after their debate sparring. Harris was supposed to apologize for taking a cheap shot but she didn’t and laughed it off and said “that’s politics.”
During the debate, Harris called out Biden on issues, saying, “I do not believe you are racist, but I also believe, and it is personal – it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and careers on the segregation of race in this country.”

There are only 100 days to go until Election Day. 100 days to get your friends, family, neighbors, and complete strangers to turn out the vote to flip the Senate and elect @JoeBiden to the White House. The stakes could not be higher. The decision voters make on November 3rd will shape the country and the world our children and grandchildren will grow up in. The future of the Supreme Court, health care, the climate crisis, and more are all on the ballot. We have a lot of work to do before November 3rd. Let’s register everyone we know to vote, donate to campaigns when we can, and turn out at the ballot box to defeat Donald Trump and elect Joe Biden as President of the United States.
Senator Harris posted a photo on social media with Biden a few days ago. So maybe this new-found relationship is for real and straight-forward than we all assume to be. We will find out soon out.
