Biden’s VP is Kamala Harris

The Alexis I. DuPont high school in Wilmington, Delaware is the location where Vice President Joe Biden is expected to introduce Senator Kamala Harris as his vice presidential running mate.

Biden and Harris are due to speak at an event scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m., according to Democratic campaign officials.

All the women with a shot at becoming Joe Biden’s running mate first had to face tough questions in an initial interview, including: What would your agenda be? What do you think Donald Trump’s nickname for you would be?

The process was in many ways unlike any other vice-presidential search in memory — taking place under an unusual public glare fostered by Biden’s early declaration that he would consider only women for the job, a decision that brought on fierce lobbying to further narrow the field by race.

Hundreds of prominent activists, lawmakers and opinion leaders called on Biden to choose a Black woman, effectively putting him in a bind as he considered his most consequential decision as a presidential candidate.

As Harris joins the Biden ticket, there are a number of clashes between the two that will warrant explanation.

Among tyem is a broad attack in Biden’s position on busing to cure segregated schools, but such distinctions should melt away as Democrats take on an incumbent who has spoken favorably about the Ku Klux Klan, neoNazis and other white supremacists.

President Donald Trump has gone as far as to call himself ‘a nationalist,’ reaffirming his tendency to embrace a Fascist identity.

Polls show Biden leading Trump by as many as 13 percentage points.

The election is just over 80 days away.
