Cory Booker worked closely with fellow U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris on anti-lynching legislation and on making changes to policing following the death of George Floyd.
And he cheered Joe Biden’s decision to choose her as his running mate, making her the first Black woman on the national ticket of a major political party.
Kamala is a trailblazer who will serve this country well as the first Black and Asian American woman on a major party’s ticket.
“It’s really a wonderful moment in American history,” he said.
Booker said Biden’s decision to select Harris was another indication that the former vice president understood the importance of addressing those issues.
