Kamala Harris for VP!

Today the world is witness to a great step forward. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has chosen Democratic California Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate for the 2020 presidential election.

Superstars from Taylor Swift to LeBron James have articulated their support for Harris. If Biden is elected in November, Harris will be the first female vice president and first vice president of color. Harris is also only the fourth woman in U.S. history to be chosen for one of the presidential tickets.

Such a momentous announcement has ignited celebratory reactions on social media and Harris has been on the receiving end of some highly significant Twitter endorsements from Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Senator Bernie Sanders.

The former president, Barack Obama tweeted: “I’ve known Senator @KamalaHarris for a long time. She is more than prepared for the job. She’s spent her career defending our Constitution and fighting for folks who need a fair shake. This is a good day for our country. Now let’s go win this thing.”

While 2016 Democratic nominee Clinton wrote: “I’m thrilled to welcome @KamalaHarris to a historic Democratic ticket. She’s already proven herself to be an incredible public servant and leader. And I know she’ll be a strong partner to @JoeBiden. Please join me in having her back and getting her elected.”

Democratic Vermont Senator Sanders praises Harris who he said “understands how to fight for the working people.”

He tweeted: “Congratulations to @KamalaHarris, who will make history as our next Vice President. She understands what it takes to stand up for working people, fight for health care for all, and take down the most corrupt administration in history. Let’s get to work and win.”

Indeed, as this info graphic from Statista shows, Harris is hugely popular among registered Democratic voters.

Harris is popular with a number of stars as well, who swiftly exhibited their backing for Biden’s running mate on social media. Scandal star Kerry Washington shared an earnest post, saying she was “overwhelmed” by such a historic moment.

She tweeted: “Overwhelmed by this historic moment. @KamalaHarris is the first Black woman & first Asian-American/Indian to be a VP nominee of major party. My heart is soaring for all the kids out there who see themselves in her and will dream bigger because of this. #KamalaHarrisForVP.”

This truly is a new day for women, for people of color and for humanity as a whole!
