Democrats pound their message: To oust Trump, you must vote
August 20, 2020
WILMINGTON, Del. - Kamala Harris accepted the Democratic nomination for vice president Wednesday night, cementing her status as a leader in a party staking its future on building a diverse coalition of voters as the first Black woman on a major party ticket.
She addressed the Democratic National Convention's third night after former President Barack Obama, another barrier breaker, warned that American democracy itself was at risk if President Donald Trump wins reelection this fall.
Harris, a 55-year-old California senator, issued an urgent plea for voters of all colors to rally behind Joe Biden and find a way to vote despite concerns about the pandemic and postal slowdowns.
