Has there ever been a female vice president in the united states
By accepting the nomination to be Joe Biden’s Democratic Vice Presidential nominee on Aug. 19, Kamala Harris became the third woman as well as the first Black woman and the first person of Indian descent — to be selected as a running mate on a major presidential party ticket.
Kamala Devi Harris was born on October 20, 1964, in Oakland, California. Reared in a predominantly African American neighborhood of Berkeley, she was brought to civil rights demonstrations as a toddler and sang in a Baptist choir.
Sarah Palin's candidacy for Vice President of the United States was publicly announced by then-presumptive Republican Party presidential candidate John McCain on August 29, 2008.
She follows in the footsteps of Geraldine Ferraro, who became the first woman on a major White House ticket when she was picked to be the running mate of 1984 Democratic presidential candidate Walter Mondale.
