Senator Kamala Harris was declared by presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden to be his running mate, making her a Vice Presidential candidate in the 2020 Presidential Election in the United States. Along with being the first Black woman, Harris is also the first Asian American woman to grab the nomination, as she the daughter of an Indian mother and a Jamaican father. Her grandfather PV Gopalan, a former bureaucrat with the Government of India is known to have taken her for walks on Elliot’s Beach in Besant Nagar, Chennai.

Kamala Harris has said in the past, “My grandfather would talk to me about the importance of applying an unflinching ethical lens to every single problem you face.” O Paneerselvam, the Deputy Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, said in a tweet, “It is a moment of pride for Indians and Tamil Nadu especially, as Kamala Harris, the first Indian senator, whose mother hails from Tamil Nadu has been nominated as the Vice Presidential candidate by the US Democratic party. My hearty wishes to her.”
