for
no one, says Kamala

for the November 3 election, as she is seen lightly dancing in the
rain addressing voters in Florida in a video which has gone viral on social media.

She is the first Black woman and the first Asian-American woman to be selected as the vice presidential nominee of a major political party in the US.

Harris resumed her election campaign, which she had paused
for a few days after two of her staffers tested positive with COVID-19. On Monday, she campaigned in Orlando and Jacksonville.

“When we vote, we win,”
Harris told carloads of people who covered a
rain-soaked parking area behind a University of North Florida conference center.

In her remarks,
Harris stressed on Florida’s importance
for the national presidential race and said the state’s voters “are very likely going to decide” the contest.
