Kamala Harris leva juventude e experiência à candidatura de Biden

By Duncan Mil

August 12, 2020 - Kamala Harris vai ser a primeira mulher negra na candidatura presidencial de um dos grandes partidos. Ao escolher Kamala, o candidato presidencial democrata Joe Biden indicou que aprendeu as lições de 2016. Nessa campanha presidencial assistiu-se ao primeiro declínio na afluência dos eleitores negros em 20 anos, o que ajudou o republicano President Donald Trump a hegar à Casa Branca.

Biden announced the selection over text message and in a follow-up email to supporters: “Joe Biden here. Big news: I’ve chosen Kamala Harris as my running mate. Together, with you, we’re going to beat Trump.” The two will appear together in Wilmington, Delaware, on Wednesday.

Harris is expected to keep up attacks on President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, just as she has for months as the frontrunner to be Biden’s running mate.

In recent days, Harris and Susan Rice, former national security adviser to President Barack Obama, had been mentioned as top contenders to become Biden’s running mate.
