WASHINGTON 

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden tapped California Senator Kamala Harris on Tuesday to be his running mate ahead of the US election in November. 

Biden said Harris, who was widely seen as the front-runner in the former vice president’s lengthy selection process, is “a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants.”

“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,” he said on Twitter, referring to his late son Beau. “I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.”
