Sen. Kamala Harris endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden for president in a video released on her Twitter account Sunday.
In a posting addressing her supporters, the former Democratic presidential candidate said Biden “has served our country with dignity and we need him now more than ever.”
“I have decided I am with great enthusiasm going to endorse Joe Biden for president of the United States. I believe in Joe,” she said.
“One of the things that we need right now is we need a leader who does care about the people and therefore can unify the people, and I believe Joe can do that.”
Biden responded moments later on Twitter, thanking the California Democrat.
“Kamala – You’ve spent your whole career fighting for folks who’ve been written off and left behind – and no small part of that alongside Beau,” the candidate said. “From our family: thank you.”
Harris, during a Democratic primary debate last June, hammered the longtime senator from Delaware on his stands on busing and civil rights during the 1970s, taking him to task at one point for working with senators who supported segregation.
