Joe Biden named California Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate on Tuesday, making history as both the first Black woman and the first Asian-American on a major presidential ticket in US history.

“I have the great honour to announce that I’ve picked Kamala Harris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate.”

Harris, 55, was close with Biden’s late son, Beau, who served as Delaware attorney general while she held the same post in California.

Biden’s social media post continued: “Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau. I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.”

Following the announcement, Harris tweeted she is “honoured” to join Biden and she will “do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.”

Should Biden, 77, succeed in defeating President Donald Trump in November, Harris would become the United States’ first female vice president.

Earlier on Tuesday Harris wrote on Twitter: “Black women and women of colour have long been underrepresented in elected office and in November we have an opportunity to change that. Let’s get to work.”

Harris ran her own campaign for president and had several heated exchanges with Biden during the primary debates.

She had attacked Biden for working with segregationists during his Senate years and for opposing school busing during the 1970s, a practice used to reduce segregation in schools.

Harris abandoned the campaign in December and has since supported Biden.
