Biden and Harris Make First Campaign Appearance Together

(Thursday, August 12, 2020) – Joe Biden and Kamala Harris made their first appearance together since the historic Tuesday pick.  Biden and Harris wasted know time as they took the stage at a Wilmington, Delaware school gymnasium today taking jabs at President Donald Trump.

While it wasn’t your typical campaign stop appearance, the Biden Harris debut kept with a campaign style tradition of unleashing fury on their republican rival. “The case against Donald Trump and Mike Pence is open and shut, said Harris.  “This virus has impacted almost evey country.  But there’s a reason it has hit America worse than any other advanced nation. It’s because of Trump’s failure to take it seriously from the start.”

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Biden and Harris were careful to stay apart and there was not the usual hugging or shaking of hands.  The gymnasium was mainly empty except for campaign staffers and reporters.

But even without the presence of a crowd, Biden played to the cameras.  Biden talked up his selection of Harris “This morning all across the nation, little girls woke-up, especially little black and brown girls, who so often feel overlooked and under-evaluated in their communities.  But today, today, just maybe, they’re seeing themselves for the first time in a new way,” said Biden.  Harris is the first woman of color on a major party presidential ticket.

Biden’s choice of Harris has apparently given his campaign a big financial boost.  He revealed today that online fundraising brought in $26 million in the past 24 hours with over 150k people giving for the very first time.
