Joe Biden recently announced that Kamala Harris will be his Democratic vice-presidential candidate in the 2020 US election.
Who is Kamala Harris?
Kamala Devi Harris was born on October 20, 1964, in Oakland, California. She was born to a Tamil mother and Afro-Jamaican father, although she often described herself as simply an “American”. She graduated from Howard University and University of California, Hastings College of the Law.
After her parent’s divorce, she stayed with her mother. In her autobiography, she points out how her diverse upbringing was a result of her surroundings in America and India (frequent visits). In her autobiography, she states, “My mother understood very well that she was raising two black daughters.” “She knew that her adopted homeland would see Maya and me as black girls and she was determined to make sure we would grow into confident, proud black women.”
After her graduation, she pursued her career as an advocate and later, became the first Indian-American to serve in the United States senate.
In 2019, she launched her campaign for the 2020 US Presidency Elections, however, due to lack of funds (reported) had to withdraw.
Now, as Biden’s running mate, she has got another wildcard entry into the Presidency elections.
Who is a Running Mate?
In simple terms, a running mate is an individual who is running in an election together with another individual on a joint ticket.
Now, the 55 year old, Kamala Devi Harris with a biracial background is running with Joe Biden as the presumptive Democratic vice-president nominee.
