US election 2020: Kamala Harris – the first woman vice-president First Speech

Sharing is Caring

A year ago her own presidential dreams sputtered to a halt, but now Kamala Harris has made history by becoming the first female vice-president-elect.

How her fortunes have changed in the last 16 months.

The California Senator had surged to the front of a crowded field of Democratic candidates on the back of a series of strong debate performances – and a searing critique of her rival Joe Biden over race in June 2019. By the end of the year, however, her campaign was dead.

Now the 56-year-old will be running the country alongside Mr Biden at a critical time in its history
