On Wednesday, Senator Kamala Harris formally accepted the nomination to be Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden’s running mate during day three of the party’s national convention. She will become the first woman in US history to be vice president if the Biden ticket prevails in the November election.
Joe Biden formally accepted the Democratic Party’s nomination for president of the United States in a big speech wrapping up the party’s four-night virtual national convention that was nominally held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
“Here and now, I give you my word: If you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us, not the worst. I will be an ally of the light, not of the darkness. It’s time for us, for we the people, to come together”, Biden said.
He added that it’s time to end this “season of darkness”, pledging to implement a national strategy to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. The Democratic presidential nominee attacked the current administration and spoke about how the US can rebuild after the COVID-19 crisis.
