Former president Barack Obama expressed his approval on Joe Biden’s choice to make California Senator Kamala Harris his running mate.
Obama said that Biden “nailed this decision.”
In a statement, Obama said, “Choosing a vice president is the first important decision a president makes. When you’re in the Oval Office, weighing the toughest issues, and the choice you make will affect the lives and livelihoods of the entire country — you need someone with you who’s got the judgment and the character to make the right call.”
Biden served as Obama’s Vice President for two terms. The former commander-in-chief had nothing but praises for the California-raised Harris.
“I’ve known Senator Harris for a long time. She is more than prepared for the job,” Obama said, adding that Harris “spent her career defending our Constitution and fighting for folks who need a fair shake.”
“This is a good day for our country. Now let’s go win this thing,” Obama concluded.
