“When I started my run for president, I said America needs a president who reflects the decency and dignity of the American people,” Harris said in a news release Sunday. "A president who speaks the truth; and a president who fights for those who voices are too often overlooked or taken for granted.
“I still believe that to this day. That is why I am proud to announce that I am endorsing my friend, Vice President Joe Biden, for President of the United States.”
Harris had a memorable exchange with Biden during the first Democratic debate in June, the Times reported.
“It was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country,” Harris said. “And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing. And, you know, there was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day. And that little girl was me.”
