"He exchanged a photo shoot for nothing at all," assured the senator of California Kamala Harris.

US. He claimed the support of "The only black woman in the United States to be elected to the Senate", while the second, Kamala Harris, was about two meters from him.
Previously, the African-American Senator of New Jersey Cory Booker had already attacked him by estimating that he had to "Hover" when he opposed the legalization of marijuana, though effective in some American states, without Joe Biden finding a convincing parry. When the candidates, once again unanimous, expressed the concern to make the environment their priority, the former senator of Delaware put forward a law adopted in 1980 and which he presented as major, while his opponents remained pensive.
