Today, Joe Biden selected Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. Senator Harris is a proven leader. As Attorney General of California, she oversaw the country’s second largest Justice Department, second only to the U.S. Department of Justice. As a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence she is well-versed in the most critical issues facing our nation’s security. Sen. Harris’ proven track record shows she is ready to lead America through these harrowing times.
Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II released the following statement:
“There is no doubt: Biden and Harris are a winning ticket. Hailing from California, Senator Harris represents the diversity of the West and of America. As the first Black woman and first Asian American selected to the position, Senator Harris’ nomination is nothing short of historic. She built a career breaking glass ceilings while leaving no hard working American behind. As Attorney General of California, Senator Harris took on the big banks, big oil, and the gun lobby. She is a fighter through and through and will be ready on Day One to face the crisis Trump has left us in. Already, she has introduced a plan to combat this pandemic and its devastating racial disparities. This November, with Biden and Harris at the helm, we will unite this country and finally secure a future that works for all Americans.”
