'A Historic Moment': Colorado Democratic Women Celebrate Biden's Pick Of Harris For VP
"This is a historic moment," said Colorado state Rep. Leslie Herod, a Denver Democrat and chairwoman of Colorado's Black Democratic Legislative Caucus. "People are starting to listen to Black people and Black voices and the things that we have talked about — racism, injustice, discrimination — things that we've experienced for generations. People are finally beginning to acknowledge it and believe it, and try to do better."
"I think this is a winning ticket," Herod added. "And I think it shows the democratic nature of wanting to really bring this country together."
