(UnitedVoice.com) – Counting on it to be his saving grace in the upcoming presidential election, former Vice President Joe Biden (D) has not yet announced his VP running mate.
Speculation is that he believes he needs a Black woman to help him cross the finish line and shore up the black vote. Yesterday, Biden held his first press conference in months.
An Associated Press reporter noticed he was holding handwritten notes and took a picture of the paper, revealing some interesting information and potential insight.
At the top of it, the name “Kamala Harris” (D-CA) was written, along with some positive bullet points.

It makes one wonder, why was Harris written on his notes, and what does it mean? The senator has reportedly been one of Biden’s top two choices in recent weeks.
She’s a Black woman who’s also a Democratic US Senator from California. Last fall, she ran unsuccessfully for president in the Democratic primaries against Biden before dropping out.
In June 2019, Harris accused Biden of working with segregationists Senators, calling it “hurtful.” She also said the former vice president and Senator opposed busing.
“There was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day, and that little girl was me.”
Primaries are always contentious as candidates try to position themselves over their rivals. In many instances, hard feelings are difficult to get over.
However, in this case, it appears Biden isn’t holding any grudges against Harris.
