Come November, Kla could be next in line for US Presi nt
WASHINGTON: Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday picked California Senator Kla Harris, whose mother was from Tamil Nadu, as his vice-presi ntial running mate for the 2020 ion.
Harris, who was born in Oakland, California, and whose father is Jican, will be the first Black and Indian-American on a major US ticket. She is also only the fourth woman in history to be chosen on a major ’s presi ntial ticket.
“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked Kla Harris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate,” Biden had announced earlier. “Back when Kla was attorney general, she worked closely with Beau. I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and prected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner.”
Beau Biden, the former vice presi nt’s eldest son, was attorney general of Delaware when Harris was California AG. He died of cancer in 2015.
Presi nt Trump stepped into the fractious Democratic race, noting Harris had virtually called Biden a racist during the Democratic debate. Despite this, she was on Biden’s shortlist because of her lively record as a prosecutor and in her short stint in the Senate. Although California is a Democratic fortress and Biden doesn’t need her help to win the state, the choice brings a geographical bnce to the ticket because the former VP is from Delaware in the east. Biden and Harris are expected to make an appearance in Delaware on Wednesday.
Although she considers herself Black, Harris has often spoken of her Indian roots. While her Indian heritage did not appear to be a major factor in Biden’s choice, there are significant Indian ves in some key battleground states, besides the fact that Indian-Americans are the best-educated and highest-earning ethnic group in the US and are becoming po itically assertive.

Dude, please stop your B.S. She is no daughter of Chennai..She hates the very idea of India and has spoken ag inst our country on numerous occasions. This categorizing of anyone as "one of us" is due to a low self-esteem. She is American. Period.
Exactly. Indian media just goes ga ga over anything with Indian connection. Be confident in yourself India, you dont need anyone, you on your own can/should do it.

As Indians we should support only those Indians or Americans who support for Indian Cause. Just being Indian Origin doesn't means blindly ve her
Just strengthens our suspicion that this is a leftist sponsored newspaper. This Kla Harris is a staunch leftist and an opponent of India. She was ag inst India accusing India of h an ri hts and is a darling of pakis. We Indians have noting to be happy about such thorns.
Kla Harris is anti-Hindu, anti-India, pro-Mus m, pro-Pakistan, pro-Mus m te rorts and pro-. Indians should not get confused with Kla in her name. She is a Radical Leftist aka Liberals/Moderate called in America and American English.
Trump will be best to deal with . Now is biggest threat to India and we are in great trouble as are not vacating our territories and we are not in position to defeat as it has massive military might.
Joe Biden is wng the ion.
Extremely bad news for India. Kla, like Biden & Democrats, is anti-Indian and Pro-Pakistani. She also made it clear that she will force India to release Kashmir to Pakistan.
Daughter of Chennai tag is inappropriate. Kla is born in USA. Mother died at 7 years of age. Raised by Jican father in America in Jican culture. There is no link with Chennai. Knows nothing about Chennai or India. Heredity comes from father, not mother.
Don't go gaga over Kla Harris. She never talked about her Indian roots in any meeting. She has identified as Black and African American from her father's side. She is not a big supporter of India. So don't go too much into her Indian ancestry. Her mom passed away long back and with that, Kla's connection to India is done ad dusted.
Please dont add desi tune to this woman. No one wants to associate with India once they are citizens of other countries. They are actually ashamed to be refereed as Indians.
I live in USA. She and Biden are ANTI indian.
Leftist... never fall in the trap of leftists
Forget Biden or Kla ,
Trump is the only candidate who said openly, "I like Hindus, I love Indians"
and you believe it word for word. feel sorry for you!

Her mother is daughter of Chennai not Harris herself.
please stop this kind of show-casing?
We should stop this fascination towards Americans and people settled in western world with Indian roots. They are not our citizens, period. We have a impressive list of achievers and leaders in our country. So no point in going gaga over these...
She call herself African American..
She will be bigger enemy of India. Trump and Republicans are best bet for India
This woman and the democrats has no regards for India and Hindus..
Ve for Trump .....She supports Pak and hater of India ...Basically she is a Chr tian and oppose Hinduism....
So, should I feel proud ? I don't see any logic. Write something that makes sense
She is Anti-India. Dont need her.
