Senator Harris joins Biden ticket as running mate to defeat President Trump this November.

FLOURTOWN, PA—Pennsylvania State Treasurer Joe Torsella today issued the following statement regarding the selection of Senator Kamala Harris to be the Democratic nominee for Vice President:

“By choosing Senator Kamala Harris to be his running mate, Joe Biden has selected an outstanding partner to help lead and heal our country. Senator Harris is brilliant, tough, and empathetic, at a time when we need all three of those qualities to be seen again leading our Executive Branch.
The next president and vice president will have to rebuild a federal government in collapse. They will have to manage a global pandemic and repair partnerships this president has recklessly destroyed. They will have to restore decency and honor to institutions that have been debased, and fight for a lasting economic recovery for American families.

In this important decision, Joe Biden has again shown why Americans trust him to lead. I am thrilled to do everything I can to help put Joe Biden and Kamala Harris into office, and to get started rebuilding the American Dream.”—State Treasurer, Joe Torsella
