Harris tweeted that Biden will "build an America that lives up to our ideals" and added, "I'm honored to join him as our party's nominee for Vice President, and do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief". During a debate, she said Biden made "very hurtful" comments about his past work with segregationist senators and slammed his opposition to busing as schools began to integrate in the 1970s.

But now, after increasing nastiness ensued in the final phase of Biden's search, the clear victor, and his clear favorite is Sen.

Some Biden confidants said Harris' debate attack did irritate the former vice-president, who had a friendly relationship with her. Harris was also close with Biden's late son, Beau, who served as DE attorney general while she held the same post in California.

In a statement, penned by President Donald Trump's senior campaign advisor Katrina Pierson, narrowed in on Harris' history as a prosecutor, claiming that she will try to hide her career in order to win over progressive voters.

The decision is of great outcome, not only for Democrats' immediate political prospects but for the future of the party.

Given the similarities in their legal careers and mixed-race backgrounds, Harris was at one point dubbed "the female Barack Obama" after the Democrat who became the first African American president in USA history.

Harris, born in Oakland to an Indian mother and Jamaican father, was the second black woman to be elected in 2016 to the Senate.

She served six years as the attorney general of California before arriving in the Senate in 2016. But on Tuesday, the announcement was celebrated by Democrats from across the political spectrum. She is also the first Asian-American on a major presidential ticket. "They're requirements of the job".

The list in the legislation included practices Harris did not vocally fight to reform while leading California's Department of Justice.

"I've known Senator @KamalaHarris for a long time", he tweeted.

Black women were critical to Biden's success in the Democratic primary, lifting him to victory in SC after series of stinging losses.

After the protests that erupted over the May 25 killing of George Floyd, a Black man, by a white policeman in Minneapolis, Biden's search focused predominantly on candidates of colour. "I feel so blessed. To see a Black woman nominated for the first time reaffirms my faith that in America, there is a place for every person to succeed no matter who they are or where they come from".

Raised in California, Harris became the first African American woman to serve as the state's attorney general in 2011 and was elected in 2016 as the second African American woman and first South Asian-American to become a USA senator, according to her website. "There's more clarity to her public persona".

But Biden and Harris have since returned to a warm relationship.

It goes on to claim neither Biden nor Harris are moderate candidates, pushing the idea that Biden is "surrendering control of our nation to the radical mob".

Biden's age also has led to broad speculation he will serve only one term, making Harris a potential top contender for the nomination in 2024. Harris endorsed Biden's presidential bid in March.

The exchange resurfaced recently with a report that one of Biden's closest friends and a co-chair of his vice-presidential vetting committee, former Connecticut Sen.

For many Democratic women, the backlash was further evidence of the importance of selecting a candidate who demonstrated the vital role of Black women within the party. With Trump's "law and order" mantra, that could work against her, especially in the Black community. "And that little girl was me", she said then.

Biden was unusually candid about the selection process, an affair traditionally shrouded in secrecy and intrigue.

Former President Barack Obama also lauded the decision, saying Biden "nailed" it.
