FACTS

    After months of speculation, Joe Biden announced Tuesday that Kamala Harris will be his running mate in the upcoming presidential election. Among other things, Harris has served as the California attorney general from 2011-2017 and is currently in office as California’s first black and American-Indian female state senator. In 2019, she announced her candidacy for the 2020 presidential elections but eventually dropped out due to funding. Biden announced their partnership by calling her “one of the country’s finest public servants.”

    RIGHT

    The Right does not support Harris, whom many view as a far-left liberal. One writer ridiculed the media’s portrayal of her, pointing out her progressivism on the issues of abortion, health care, and climate:

    “If Biden’s running mate is a ‘moderate’ with a ‘relatively centrist record,’ I would hate to see what the New York Times and the Associated Press consider ‘liberal.’”

    Becket Adams, senior commentary writer for the Washington Examiner

    President Trump has referred to her as “about the most liberal person in the U.S. Senate.” Some worry she will greatly strengthen Biden’s chances, but others don’t believe she will “have much of an effect on the outcome of the race in November.”

    LEFT

    The Left is largely in favor of Harris. New York Times opinion columnist Frank Bruni praised her as “an agent of contrast…between Trump’s politics of division and Biden’s politics of inclusion.” A Times article pointed out that Harris “reflects a Democratic Party that is increasingly young, diverse and cosmopolitan.” Hillary Clinton and former president Barack Obama both praised Biden’s choice.

    “This is a good day for our country. Now let’s go win this thing.”

    Barack Obama, former President of the United States

    However, it is thought by some that Biden’s choice won’t have much appeal with younger or far-Left progressives who favored Bernie Sanders, and some have viewed her tenure as a prosecutor to be “complex” and a “strike against her.”
