Joe Biden selects Kamala Harris as his running mate for the upcoming battle. - TNBC USA

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday announced Sen Kamala Harris of California, as his vice presidential pick against President Donald Trump this November.

Harris whose father is from Jamaica and Mother is from India, has become the first Black female presidential nominee the third woman to be named as a running mate for a major political party. If Biden wins the race, Harris would create history as the first female, first African- American and first Indian- American vice president.

Biden announced months ago that he will choose a female running mate. But selecting Harris upon Geraldine Ferraro, Sarah Palin, and Hillary Clinton it’s clear that the summer movement dominated by the killing of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement presumably played a vital role in the selection of Harris as a mate.

According to a current study, 50 percent of the Indian-Americans in key battleground states like Texas, Michigan, Florida, Virginia, and Pennsylvania who traditionally vote for Democrats, are now switching over to the Trump camp.

Kamala Harris in her tweet praised Joe Badin and conveyed a positive note to the Americans by saying ‘the battle we can win.’

It will an interesting battle to see the November run between the Democratic and the Republican. Needless to say, the battle is evenly poised and whose consequence remains highly dubious.
