As the middle of the road Democrats continue to coalesce around now frontrunner Joe Biden, California Sen. Kamala Harris has offered the former Vice President her endorsement, offering a warm political olive branch that’s a stark reversal from her aggressive debate stage tactics against him nine months ago.

On Sunday, Harris talked up Biden as the best candidate to beat President Trump in November.

“There is no one better prepared than Joe to steer our nation through these turbulent times, and restore truth, honor, and decency to the Oval Office,” Harris said in a statement. “He is kind and endlessly caring, and he truly listens to the American people. You can see in his eyes how he takes to heart the experiences of mothers and fathers working to make ends meet and worrying about whether their children can be safe in their classroom, or young people who fight tirelessly to tackle climate change as they ask for a fair shot at the future in front of them.”

Harris’s endorsement of Biden comes as he’s on the precipice of being on a clear path to win enough delegates to secure the Democratic nomination at the party’s national convention this summer, over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Harris’s endorsement of the former Veep is a notable change in tone from the first Democratic debate of the 2020 cycle in Miami in June. Harris, at the time, took Biden to task for opposing busing (designed to end racial segregation in schools) and declared that she had been a victim at age 6, saying, “I was that little girl.”

The California senator later in that debate pressed Biden on his remarks at a New York fundraiser weeks earlier, when he touted his collaborative working relationship with known segregationists former Sens. James O. Eastland of Mississippi and Herman Talmadge of Georgia in the Senate during the 1970s.

“I do not believe you are a racist,” she said. “But I also believe, and it’s personal, and it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country.”

Taking Biden to the mat like that resulted in a short-lived surge in Harris’s pole numbers, but soon after, her campaign flagged, and she dropped out of the top tier of candidates. On a downward spiral, Harris left the race on Dec. 3, in time to remove her name from the March 3 Super Tuesday ballot in California. Sanders appears to have won California narrowly over Biden, but the delegate split will be nearly even.

Harris’s endorsement comes two days before a crucial round of Democratic primaries that could prove decisive in deciding the Democratic nominee against Trump. Contests in Idaho, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, and Washington on Tuesday account for 352 delegates.

Some believe that Harris’s endorsement is her “application” to be considered as a running mate, which would add to the diversity of the ticket, which now ensures that the Democratic nominee will be one of two old, white men.

  1. I was very sorry to see such a fine candidate as Kamala leave the race, but everything happens for a reason. Kamala would be a fine candidate for vice- president.

  3. Amazing Six weeks ago she thought he was a dirty old man who was losing mental acuity. Now she kisses his backside hoping for VP position. She would probably ask for mental exam if he won so she could replace. DEMOCRAT MY FANNY . SDHE IS OF THE ME PARTY Anything as long as its me.

  5. No one cared for what she wanted to do as President and the 3% of the supporters she had she wants them to also support another loser like her self Joe Bite-me. She is just another Hillary Clinton. A loser!

  6. Thanks for your posting. One other thing is individual states have their very own laws that affect homeowners, which makes it very difficult for the our elected representatives to come up with a fresh set of recommendations concerning property foreclosure on people. The problem is that each state provides own guidelines which may work in an unfavorable manner when it comes to foreclosure insurance plans.
