Joe Biden has announced California senator Kamala Harris is his running mate; it’s a move that puts a woman of color on the presidential ticket for the first time. Biden announced Harris through a text to supporters. He also tweeted a short announcement saying quote “I have the great honor to announce that iI picked Kamala Harris a fearless fighter for the little guy and one of the country’s finest public servants as my running mate,” he wrote.
