Sarah Palin from the Republican Party in 2008 and Geraldine Ferraro from the Democrats in 1984.
Until now, black women in the United States had not received a ticket for the presidency.

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.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) August 11, 2020
Biden tweeted that he was “proud” to have elected Harry as vice president.
He called Kamala “a brave warrior and one of America’s best public servants.”
Biden also recalled how she worked with her late son when he was attorney general of California.
