“There is no one better prepared than Joe to steer our nation through these turbulent times, and restore truth, honor, and decency to the Oval Office.”

Kamala Harris has put her support behind Joe Biden‘s campaign for president.

In a video released on Twitter this morning (see below,) the California Senator officially endorsed Biden’s run, claiming the former Vice President “speaks to the best of who we are and challenges us to live up to our ideals.”

In a separate written statement, Harris added, “You can see in his eyes how he takes to heart the experiences of mothers and fathers working to make ends meet and worrying about whether their children can be safe in their classroom, or young people who fight tirelessly to tackle climate change as they ask for a fair shot at the future in front of them. And with a lifetime in public service, Joe has a proven track record of getting things done.”

With her endorsement, Harris joins South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, and Texas Senator Beto O’Rourke, in supporting Biden’s presidential run.

Harris dropped out of the race late last year after running out of money in her own bid for president. Despite having clashed with the former VP over busing desegregation in one of the debates, in the week following the termination of her campaign, Biden alluded to considering Harris as a running mate, noting “She is solid. She can be president someday herself. She can be the vice president. She can go on to be a Supreme Court justice. She can be an attorney general. She has enormous capability.”

And with the invitation to join her and Biden at a rally in Detroit on Monday, it appears we may be on the cusp of precisely that announcement ahead of Tuesday’s batch of primaries in six additional states where he’ll finally square-up with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who has yet to receive a single endorsement from fellow contenders in the race.
