Statement from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Joe Biden naming Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) as his running mate:
Kamala Harris has spent her career tackling some of the most critical issues facing working families. As California’s attorney general, she held big banks accountable in the wake of the housing crisis, prosecuted employers for stealing our wages and advanced criminal justice reform. As a U.S. senator, she has achieved a perfect AFL-CIO lifetime score, working to create a fairer process for forming a union and protecting our health care and retirement security. We look forward to electing her America’s next vice president.
