“Kamala knows how to govern. She knows how to make the hard calls. She’s ready to do this job on day one,” he said.
Taliking the stage after Biden she said “she was “mindful of all the ambitious women before me, whose sacrifice, determination and resilience makes my presence here today even possible.”
