VP Pick Kamala Harris and the Campaign Road Ahead

Against the backdrop of an infectious pandemic and nearly 163,000 American COVID-19 deaths, the 2020 Presidential race will be unlike any other to date. The pandemic agenda combined with the constitutional damage inflicted by the Trump Administration frames the extraordinarily difficult governance challenge that Vice President Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris will have to navigate. The importance of this historical pick cannot be underestimated. Sen. Harris’ selection on the 55th anniversary of the Los Angeles Watts Riots is of remarkable significance in our nation’s history. For the first time since its founding, a woman of color would hold the second highest elected office and play a crucial role in shaping our governance infrastructure.
