The entire world is still slowly limping back to normalcy but there are certain things that seem to go on, irrespective of everything. Yes! We are indeed talking about the Presidential elections of the United States of America, which are scheduled to happen later this year! The current President Donald Trump is attempting for re-election and has already begun his campaign and had earlier attended a rally in Tulsa, despite the USA being the most affected country by the Corona Virus! It is already known that Joe Biden would be competing against Donald Trump and earlier today, he has announced his running mate! The running mate would most probably be declared the Vice-President, if their candiate wins the elections and goes on to be sworn in as President!
Joe Biden has chosen Kamal Harris to be his running mate for the upcoming Presidential elections! This makes the first time that a woman of colour has been chosen to compete on a major party's presidential ticket and reports state that Biden has made this decision, considering the vital role that Black voters would play in his attempt to defeat Donald Trump! Reports state that Biden and Harris would be delivering remarks in Wilmington, on Wednesday! Critics consider this unprecedented selection of Kamala Harris would definitely work in Biden's favour, as she brings with her youth, race & gender votes and more importantly her prosecutorial skills! This will definitely be in favour of the Democratic Party in this November's elections, as both Biden & Trump are in their 70's and Kamala Harris will definitely be able to woo the younger voters!
Interestingly, Joe Biden and Kamal Harris were opponents during the presidential primaries and she went toe-to-toe with him during a debate, on a racial matter! Biden's choice and confidence in forging a cooperative working relationship with her shows his levels of self-confidence and assertiveness! This is only the third time that a woman has been selected as a vice-presidential candidate and the first time that a Black person has been chosen. Unfortunately, both the earlier times resulted in the candidates losing the elections. Kamala Harris is the daughter of an Indian-origin mother and her father is of a British Jamaican descent! The upcoming few weeks and the Democratic National Convention will serve to show how this decision of Biden's fares! Former US President Barack Obama is a staunch supporter of Biden and has endorsed Kamala Harris's selection as the running mate! Stay tuned for updates...
