Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden has selected Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) to be his running mate heading into the presidential election in November.

The former vice president made the announcement Tuesday on Twitter following months of speculation and secret vetting.

The selection is sure to be celebrated by Democrats, especially those who pushed for a black woman to be chosen, and reviled by Republicans in the coming weeks and months.

It was widely expected that Biden would choose a black woman to run alongside him as the nation grapples over race relations, though the campaign was able to remain tight-lipped on exactly who it would be until the last minute.

In late July, Biden indicated that four black women were on his vice presidential shortlist but refused to reveal names.

“I am not committed to naming any [of the potential candidates], but the people I’ve named, and among them there are four black women,” Biden told MSNBC’s Joy Reid.

Ahead of that indication, CNN had reported that “Sen. Kamala Harris of California, Rep. Val Demings of Florida, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, former Obama administration national security adviser Susan Rice and Rep. Karen Bass of California are among the Black women being considered.”

The Democratic ticket now looks ahead to November when they hope to unseat President Trump in the general election.

    Prioritizing race and gender when selecting someone for any position is racist and sexist. Which party is racist and sexist? It does not begin with an R, but a D.
