What the Mass. politicians are saying about Kamala Harris being Biden’s VP
Members of the Massachusetts congressional delegation are cheering the selection of California Sen. Kamala Harris as Joe Biden’s running mate.
Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau. I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.

Rep. Seth Moulton
In this seminal moment in our country’s history, when we are confronting a racist, aspiring authoritarian in the White House with loud and forceful calls in our streets for fundamental change, Kamala Harris is the right person at the right time to be the Vice President.

Attorney General Maura Healey
I had the privilege of working with @KamalaHarris when she was California AG. I learned so much from her about how to use our office to fight for the people who need us most.
So excited to see her continue this fight for the American people alongside @JoeBiden. Let’s win this!

A Biden-Harris ticket is a winning team – bringing strong leadership, experience, and character back to the White House. I couldn’t be more excited to cast my ballot for this duo in November. Congratulations, @KamalaHarris! #BuildBackBetter pic.twitter.com/JqXgjqsuQD
