Democratic party celebrities welcome the choice of presidential candidate Joe Biden for Kamala Harris as vice-presidential candidate. Former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton and former presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Al Gore, among others, made themselves heard on Twitter. Former competitor for the Democratic candidacy Bernie Sanders has also supported Harris’s choice.
“I’ve known Senator Kamala Harris for a long time,” writes Barack Obama. “She is more than prepared for the job. She has defended our constitution throughout her career and fought for those who need a fair chance. This is a good day for our country. ”
Bill Clinton calls Biden’s choice for Harris “excellent.” Harris, he says, will be a good partner for Biden. Clinton thinks the two will make a strong team.
Hillary Clinton, who lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump as a Democratic presidential candidate, says she is “enthusiastic” about Harris’s choice. “She has already proven herself as an excellent government servant and leader.”
Al Gore, who lost the 2000 presidential election to George W. Bush and previously served as vice president under Bill Clinton, writes that Biden made an exceptionally good choice with Harris. “Kamala has made climate and environmental justice a top priority in her career as a civil servant, and I am sure she will continue to be a strong advocate for that in the White House,” Gore writes.
Co-Senator Bernie Sanders, who competed with Harris and Biden in the Democratic primaries, congratulates Harris, “who will make history as our next vice president.” “She understands what it takes to stand up for workers, to fight for health care for all and to bring down the most corrupt government in history,” said Sanders.
