‘My dear friend’: Kamala Harris remembers late Beau Biden in victory speech

In her remarks to the nation after the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris ticket was declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election, the California senator mentioned her close relationship with Beau Biden, the president-elect’s son who died following a brain cancer diagnosis in 2015. “While I first knew Joe as vice president, I really got to know him as the father who loved Beau, my dear friend, who we remember here today,” she said. The senator, the former attorney general of California, relied on support from Beau Biden – Delaware’s attorney general – as an ally through her decision to pull California out of an agreement among all 50 state attorneys general and the Justice Department to investigate banks and allegations of foreclosure abuse during the 2011 housing crisis.
