    President & Vice President

    President

    Joe Biden is a native Pennsylvanian — born in Scranton and one of five children, Joe grew up in a working class home. When he was ten the family moved to Delaware. Joe became a senator at age 29 and weeks later suffered a horrible tragedy when his wife and daughter were killed in a car accident. His two sons, Beau and Hunter survived. Five years later,  in 1977, Joe married PA native Jill Jacobs. They had a daughter, Ashley. Joe was a leader in the senate for thirty years and in 2008 was chosen by Barack Obama to be his running mate. Joe went on to become one of the most influential Vice-Presidents in history, managing the Recovery Act and helping to shepherd the Affordable Care act through Congress.

    Joe Biden believes to his core that there’s no greater economic engine in the world than the hard work and ingenuity of the American people. Nobody has more respect for the working women and men who get up every day to build and sustain this country, or more confidence that they can meet the challenges we face.

    Biden believes this is no time to just build back to the way things were before, with the old economy’s structural weaknesses and inequalities still in place. This is the moment to imagine and build a new American economy for our families and the next generation.

    Vice-President

    The first Black and Indian American woman to represent California in the United States Senate, Kamala Harris grew up believing in the promise of America and fighting to make sure that promise is fulfilled for all Americans. Kamala’s father immigrated to the U.S. from Jamaica to study economics and her mother immigrated from India. Kamala’s mother told her growing up “Don’t sit around and complain about things, do something,” which is what drives Kamala every single day.

    Kamala started fighting for working families in the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, where she focused on prosecuting child sexual assault cases. From there, she became the first Black woman elected as San Francisco’s District Attorney. In this position, she started a program to provide first-time drug offenders second chances with the opportunity to earn a high school degree and find a job.

    Since being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2016, Kamala has introduced and co-sponsored legislation to help the middle class, increase the minimum wage to $15, reform cash bail, and defend the legal rights of refugees and immigrants.
