“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,’’ Biden said in a tweet.

If elected, the 55-year-old would be the country’s first black and first Asian-American vice-president.

Harris would also be the nation’s first female vice-president.

Daily Times gathered that Biden cited Harris’ experience as Attorney-General of California, where she “worked closely” with Biden’s deceased son, Beau Biden, the former attorney-general of Delaware.
