This might have come as a huge surprise for most of us. We have closely been following the Kamala Harris campaign in the ongoing presidential one-upmanship, and have always seen her opposing Joe Biden tooth and nail. She even went to the extent of calling him an old racist.
Of course, politics is a game of uncertainties and it should not come as a surprise to find people switching sides quite too often. The fact as it stands today is that Kamala Harris is the latest Democrat to vote for the nominations of Joe Biden as the presidential candidate. However, given the fact that (as we could see during the Kamala Harris campaign) she was the most vociferous voice against Biden among the democrats speaks a lot, when compared to the other democrats who have paraded in support for the ex-Vice President.
She stated through a video statement on Twitter that
However, the endorsement came only after Elizabeth Warren decided to exit from the race of her candidature. It is a well-known fact that Kamala Harris does share a special bond with Warren and had gone through a whole exercise of working out the plan for her to campaign and run for the Senate office.
Harris also said
While she is not much a fan of Biden, Kamala Harris endorsement to back him as Democrat candidate lies in the fact that there are no women candidates left in the fray, after the exit of Warren. Like she made it clear on Sunday, “Like many women, I watched with sadness as women exited the race one by one,….we find ourselves without any woman on a path to be the Democratic nominee for president.”
It may be remembered that the Kamala Harris campaign came to an end when she left her presidential bid in December last. Now along with a host of her old-time rivals, she has been standing in support of Joe Biden. The Democratic presidential primary will now be between former vice president Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. Biden has already captured 10 out f 14 states so far, and the primary contest will be on Tuesday in six more states. With the polls and surveys suggesting a win for Trump, it may be time for the democrats to unite and opt for the right candidate who can defeat Trump.
