Joe Biden has named his onetime rival Kamala Harris as his running mate, the campaign revealed Tuesday, elevating Californiaís junior senator as the first woman of color to appear on a major partyís presidential ticket.

Harris, who centered her unsuccessful White House bid last year on a promise to ďprosecute the caseĒ against President Trump, was widely seen as a front-runner to be Bidenís vice presidential pick. With her statewide experience as California attorney general and four years in the U.S. Senate, Harris was among the most conventionally qualified of the half-dozen or so women under consideration in the most diverse crop of contenders ever.
