Kamala Harris made history with her formal nomination as the first Black woman and person of Asian descent on a major party’s national ticket.
The 55-year-old California senator used much of her first prime-time address as Joe Biden’s running mate to tell her own story before turning her fire on President Trump.

3. Presidents’ Club rules went out the window as Barack Obama unloaded on his successor
