Summary :

On November 7, 2020, after four days of counting in several key states, Joe Biden won the race for the White House. Yet it is her running mate, Kamala Harris, who catches the eye.

Born in 1964 to a father of Jamaican origin and a mother of Indian origin, she has become the symbol of diversity in the United States. In 2010, she became the first black woman to serve as California’s attorney general. In 2016, she was the second black woman to reach the Senate. Known for her pugnacity and her authority, she now embodies a new lease of life in the Democratic camp. This tandem with a historical figure of the party poses her as a potential future president of the United States.

For Code Source, Yona Helaoua, Parisian correspondent in Washington, tells us how Kamala Harris became the most powerful woman in the country.
