Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden has named Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate for the American Presidential elections scheduled for later in November this year.
Biden announced the decision in an email to supporters.

We won’t have a minute to waste. That’s what led me to Kamala Harris,” Biden said in the email.
In a tweet, Harris said she’s honored to join Biden and will “do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.”
