BOSTON (CBS/AP) – Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren will not be on the ticket with Joe Biden this November. Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, selected Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate after Warren was featured heavily in months of speculation.

The Biden campaign announced Sen. Harris as his vice president selection on Tuesday.

Warren ran against Biden in the race for the Democratic nomination before dropping out and endorsing him in April.

After the announcement, Warren tweeted that Harris will be a great partner to Biden, “in making our government a powerful force for good in the fight for social, racial, and economic justice.”

Biden had promised to pick a woman as his vice president and faced pressure from African American activists to choose a Black running mate as an acknowledgment of their political importance and a response to institutional racism. Warren, who is white, nevertheless remained a finalist deep into the process.

    This is hysterical. The loonie left better be prepared for another 4 years of Trump. Biden can’t win anyway, the damaged Harris will not help.
    Make no mistake, I don;t like trump but over what the Democrats have offered, I will hold my nose (again) vote for him.
