Joe Biden has selected Kamala Harris as his running mate in the 2020 election. Unfortunately for Biden, this could be a repeat of the 2008 election. In 2008, John McCain selected Sarah Palin as his running mate. That decision more than likely sealed his political fate. Fast forward to 2020, Biden, who is desperate for the black vote, announced his VP would indeed be Kamala Harris. Rumors of her being the top candidate for the position swirled around for weeks.
However, the decision to add Kamala to the Democratic ballot may cost Biden the election. Kamala has never received the full support of the black community. Some say it is because she is biracial and married to a white man, while many others believe it is her tough on crime stance as a prosecutor. Critics say those policies sent a large number of black men to prison. This was something that plagued her presidential campaign.
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.
