Dr. Suzanne Chod talks Joe Biden’s pick for Vice President

Former Vice President Joe Biden has chosen Sen. Kamala Harris of California to join him on the Democratic ticket, fulfilling his pledge to select a female running mate and making Harris the first Black woman ever to appear on a major party ticket. Biden’s selection of Harris, 55, lends racial diversity, gender parity and generational breadth to his campaign. It also represents a strategic decision by the 77-year-old former vice president to keep his ticket firmly within the more moderate wing of the Democratic Party.

North Central College’s Suzanne Chod, associate professor of political science, discussed the historic pick for VP on both WGN News and ABC 7 Chicago.

“It became apparent that this was a moment in time for Joe Biden and for the Democratic Party to say it’s time for this Party and this ticket represents the people that it actually represents.”
