Obama Says of Harris Pick, Biden “Nailed This Decision”

Biden Harris
The Democratic candidates tweeted their condolences to the president after they heard of the passing of his younger brother Robert.

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.
