Gov. Murphy: Sen. Harris’ Story is ‘American Dream Come to Life’
TRENTON, NJ — Governor Phil Murphy and New Jersey Democratic State Committee Chairman John Currie are lauding presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden’s selection of California Senator Kamala Harris to be his Vice Presidential running mate. The highly anticipated announcement was made earlier today by the Biden campaign.
“Joe Biden’s selection of Kamala Harris is a watershed moment in American politics that reflects how far our society has come,” said Governor Murphy. “She is the exact right person to step into this crucial leadership role at one of the most challenging times in our nation’s history. The daughter of immigrants and someone who has dedicated her life to public service, Kamala Harris’ story is the American Dream come to life. Her passion, toughness, and dedication to helping improve peoples’ lives will make her an incredible asset to our Democratic ticket. Just like Vice President Biden, Senator Harris is ready to lead from day one and move us forward. I look forward to doing everything in my power to elect her and Joe Biden this November.”
Chairman Currie also released the following statement:
“Kamala Harris has demonstrated the ability to lead and the dedication to serve the public interest, and she is a fantastic selection to be Joe Biden’s running mate,” said Chairman Currie. “Joe Biden has delivered on his promise to empower a woman leader to stand beside him, and in selecting Senator Harris he has chosen someone with all of the necessary skills and experience to flourish in this new role. I could not be more proud to lead our New Jersey Democratic State Committee in supporting the Biden-Harris campaign and to help elect the first Black woman and the first South Asian American to serve as Vice President.”
