The student body of Harvard University has elected the first Black person as its president in its nearly 400-year history.  Noah Harris, a junior from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, ran a virtual campaign via social media and texting.

We’ve never had a virtual election.” The...
    Newt Gingrich on Friday urged President Donald Trump to study Vice President Mike Pence’s remarkable debate performance against Democratic VP nominee Kamala Harris. In an interview Friday on Fox News’ Outnumbered Overtime, the former Republican Speaker of the House said there were style and substance points Trump could use in the next debate with challenger Joe Biden. I thought Vice President Pence did a remarkable job the other night, which I really hope that the president will study, Gingrich said of the Wednesday night debate with Harris. He was calm, he was focused. He would go back and say, You didnt answer the question.  It was not hostile. He stayed on her. And I think as a result he had a very good evening and the country had a much better sense of just how radical Kamala Harris is. Trump came under fire after the Sept. 29 debate with Biden, a matchup that was dominated by interruptions and personal...

    Maya Rudolph says she hasn’t gotten a call from Lorne Michaels yet to bring back her Kamala Harris impression to “SNL” — but she did get a cryptic text. When the Hollywood Reporter asked the comedian, 48, if she heard from her former boss Michaels after the Democratic Vice Presidential candidate was announced, she said, “He sent me a GIF of myself, as Kamala, in sunglasses, sipping a cocktail and saying, ‘Oh no.’ That really made me laugh.” Rudolph was on “Saturday Night Live” from 2000 to 2007, and she’s since come back to do impressions of the California senator. Most notably she returned to the show on Sept. 28, 2019, to do her rendition of Harris for “SNL’s” spoof of the Democratic Primary Debate. When Harris, 55, was announced as Joe Biden’s pick to be his running mate on Aug. 11, social media immediately began invoking Rudolph. “The...

    With Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., formally chosen as Joe Biden's running mate, her ties to a high-level official at Twitter have been raising eyebrows. Nick Pacilio, a senior communications manager at the social media giant, drew attention to himself last week when he publically addressed Twitter's spat with President Trump. The tech giant alleged the president violated its policies by sharing a video of a "Fox & Friends" interview in which he downplayed the risk of children contracting the coronavirus. BERNIE SUPPORTERS, PROGRESSIVES TRASH BIDEN-HARRIS TICKET: A 'MIDDLE FINGER' TO THE BASE  "The original Tweet from @TeamTrump is in violation of the Twitter Rules on COVID-19 misinformation, and we've required removal," Pacilio wrote at the time. However, as Pacilio states in his own Twitter profile, he is a former staffer for Harris. According to his Linkedin page, Pacilio served as press secretary and deputy press secretary for Harris between 2011 and 2014, during the first part of...
    Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will appear on Wednesday afternoon together near Wilmington, Delaware less than 24 hours after the presumptive Democratic nominee finally announced the California senator as his running mate. The duo will deliver remarks from Biden's home state on the tailcoats of his campaign's biggest fundraising night ever. Biden's announcement Tuesday night ignited the biggest hour of online fundraising of his campaign as millions of dollars gushed into the campaign's pocket. Although the former vice president's campaign did not disclose how much it raised on Tuesday night alone, ActBlue, the main donation platform for Democrats, reported it saw more than $10.8 million in donations flood the site between 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. The same platform also processed $2.3 million during those same hours Monday evening as suspense grew for Biden's announcement. According to an estimate, Tuesday was ActBlue's fifth largest fundraising day ever.  Later Wednesday night,...
    President Donald Trump twice donated to presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris’s campaign for California attorney general, campaign finance records show. Trump donated $5,000 to Harris’s first campaign in 2011 and another $1,000 to her re-election campaign in 2013, according to California campaign finance records. Harris was elected as the state’s attorney general in 2010 and reelected in 2014, before running for an open California Senate seat in 2016. Harris was one of the last Democrats to receive a Trump donation, according to ABC News’ Jon Karl noted Tuesday. Trump largely stopped donating to Democrats in 2010, Karl noted. Interesting – @realDonaldTrump basically stopped donating to Democrats after 2010, but he donated a total of $6000 to @KamalaHarris in 2011 & 2013 (@IvankaTrump gave another $2000 in 2014). Almost all of his donations were to Republicans, but he was giving to @KamalaHarris — jonkarl (@jonkarl) August 11, 2020 ...

On Tuesday, Biden said in an email to supporters, "I’ve decided that Kamala Harris is the best person to help me take this fight to Donald Trump and Mike Pence and then to lead this nation starting in January 2021."

This president says he “doesn’t want to be distracted by it”. He doesn’t understand that taking care of the people of this nation -- all the people -- isn’t a distraction -- it’s the job.

    Scott Olson/Getty Images Former Vice President and current Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden announced that California Senator Kamala Harris will be his running mate, making her the first Black woman on a major party presidential ticket. After a lengthy and well-publicized vetting process, the ex-veep first made the hotly-anticipated announcement in a text message to supporters.

    Houston's most-read newspaper urged residents of Texas's largest city to "Stay at Home This 4th of July Weekend" in a front-page headline amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has seen surging cases in Texas and particularly Houston in recent weeks.
