Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris in August of 2020 to be his running mate to take on the Trump-Pence ticket in November. Biden’s choice made history, as Harris became the first woman of color to run a major party ticket in the United States.

Harris endorsed Biden after dropping out of the 2020 Democratic primary race. But her criticism of him during a Democratic primary debate about his opposition to school busing rankled some people close to Biden, who worry about her ambition and loyalty.
