WASHINGTON: Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday picked California Senator Kamala Harris, whose mother is a Tamilian from South India, as his vice-presidential running mate for the 2020 Presidential election.

华盛顿:周二,美国皿煮党总统候选人乔·拜登提名加州参议员卡玛拉·哈里斯为其2020年总统大选的副总统竞选搭档。哈里斯的母亲是来自印度南部的泰米尔人。


"@JoeBiden can unify the American people because he's spent his life fighting for us. And as president, he'll build an America that lives up to our ideals. I'm honored to join him as our party's nominee for Vice President, and do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief," Harris tweeted shortly after Biden announced his pick on social media.

拜登在社交媒体上宣布其选择后不久,哈里斯也发了推文:“乔拜登可以团结美国人民,因为他毕生都在为我们而战。作为总统,他将建设一个不辜负我们理想的美国。我很荣幸能被提名为副总统候选人,成为其竞选搭档,我将尽一切努力助其成为我们的总统。”

"I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris— a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate.," Biden announced an hour or so earlier, adding, "Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau. I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I'm proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign."

大约一个小时前拜登宣布:“我非常荣幸地宣布,我已经选择哈里斯作为我的竞选伙伴。她是一名为小人物而战的无畏战士,也是美国最优秀的公务员之一。哈里斯担任总检察长时,她与博·拜登合作密切。我目睹了他们鼓舞工人,保护妇女和儿童不受虐待。当时我很自豪,现在我也很自豪有她作为我的竞选搭档。”

Beau Biden, the former vice president’s eldest son, was the Attorney General of Delaware when Harris was AG of California. He died of cancer in 2015.

哈里斯担任加州总检察长时,前副总统拜登的长子博·拜登担任特拉华州的总检察长。他于2015年死于癌症。

Biden and Harris are expected to make an appearance together in Delaware on Wednesday to president a united front.

拜登和哈里斯预计将于周三在特拉华州共同露面,形成统一战线。
