Congressman Jim Himes released the following statement on the announcement of Senator Kamala Harris as the Vice President pick:
“Senator Kamala Harris is a proven leader, a vocal advocate and a fighter for working families. Not only is she ready to lead on day one, she is also a courageous public servant ready to take on big challenges.
This is a historic moment. As the first Black and South Asian woman on a major party presidential ticket, her voice and experience is critically needed now more than ever. This is a winning ticket that will build a better America. I’m ready to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the next President and Vice President of the United States.”
