Kamala Harris, born to Indian origin mother and Jamaican origin father, is the candidate for the US Vice-President on a Democratic ticket, as a ”running mate” of the Presidential candidate Joe Biden. They will be pitted against President Donald Trump and the Vice President Mike Pence , the Republican candidates in the November,2020 elections.
No one can predict the outcome of an election; but given the drop in the Trump rating in the wake of his mishandling of the Covid-19 pandemic, Joe Biden is gaining ground by the day.
Within the Democratic Party , Harris had lost the race for the Presidential candidate to Biden; but in the end the two are set to give a formidable fight to the Trump-Pence combine.
Harris,55, was born in Oakland, California . After her parents’ divorce, Harris was raised by her Hindu mother Shyamala Gopalan Harris, along with sister Maya. Her mother worked as a cancer researcher and civil rights activist, according to BBC.
It said , Harris spent four years at Howard University , one of America’s black colleges and universities.
She is the third woman vice presidential candidate for a major political party, following Geraldine Ferraro as the Democratic vice presidential pick in 1984 and Sarah Palin as the Republican vice presidential pick in 2008, the BBC said.
