PFAW Responds to Biden’s VP Selection: "We Are Proud to Give Biden and Harris Our Support"

WASHINGTON - Following the announcement of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate, People For the American Way President Ben Jealous released the following statement:

“People For the American Way is excited that Joe Biden has selected Kamala Harris as his vice presidential running mate. A strong Democratic ticket is absolutely essential, and we are thrilled to offer our support to Harris, the first Black woman, the first person of Indian descent, and only the fourth woman in history to be nominated as Vice President by a major political party. Against the backdrop of a global pandemic, a moment of racial reckoning against police violence, and the worst economic crisis Americans have faced in decades, this is the most important election of our lifetimes. After four years, we have had enough of Trump. From his indifference to the 163,000 deaths and 5 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 to undermining the U.S. Postal Service during an election that will depend heavily on mail-in-ballots, people are literally sick of Trump’s failures. Together, Biden and Harris offer the bold leadership we need to beat Trump on Election Day, and People For the American Way is committed to doing everything in our power to help them achieve victory.”
