Meet Kamala Harris, Biden's Vice Presidential Pick for 2020 Election

US Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) was tapped on Tuesday to be Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate on the Democratic ticket in the November 2020 election. Harris’ political history extends back to 2003.

Born in Oakland, California, in 1964 to an Indian doctor mother and Jamaican economist father, Harris entered school during the lengthy process of racial desegregation, a process she told Biden last year had greatly affected her political perspective.

Harris studied political science and economics at Howard University in Washington, DC, during which time she participated in political demonstrations against the apartheid regime in South Africa and interned as a mailroom clerk for California’s then-senior senator, Alan Cranston, who was in the midst of his own failed bid for the presidency in 1984. She then returned to California to study law at the University of California, San Francisco, passing the bar in 1990 and going to work as a deputy district attorney.
