About our Kamala Harris news

Latest news on Kamala Harris, US Vice President and 2024 presidential candidate, covering her campaign, policy positions, background, and role in the Biden administration.

Kamala Harris, the 49th Vice President of the United States, has emerged as the Democratic Party's presumptive nominee for the 2024 presidential election following Joe Biden's withdrawal from the race. As the first woman, first Black person, and first person of South Asian descent to serve as Vice President, Harris brings a historic and diverse background to her campaign.

Harris launched her presidential campaign on July 21, 2024, immediately after receiving Biden's endorsement. She faces challenges in improving her relatively low approval ratings as Vice President, with critics questioning her effectiveness in that role. However, Harris has emphasized her experience in the executive branch and her readiness to lead. Key policy priorities for her campaign are likely to include healthcare reform, climate change, immigration, and racial justice.

Prior to becoming Vice President, Harris served as a U.S. Senator from California and as California's Attorney General. Her background as a prosecutor has drawn both praise and criticism, with supporters highlighting her toughness on crime and detractors questioning some of her decisions. Harris has sought to position herself as a "progressive prosecutor" who worked to reform the criminal justice system from within.

Harris's personal story as the daughter of immigrant parents from Jamaica and India has been a cornerstone of her political narrative. She attended Howard University, a historically Black university, and was a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority. Harris often speaks about the influence of her mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris, a breast cancer researcher who immigrated to the U.S. from India at age 19.

As the 2024 campaign unfolds, Harris faces the task of unifying the Democratic Party and appealing to a broad coalition of voters. Her performance in debates, fundraising efforts, and ability to articulate a compelling vision for the country will be closely watched.
