Available Expert - The significance of Kamala Harris over the next four years

Monday, November 9, 2020

Queen’s University political studies expert Kathy Brock (School of Policy Studies) is available to comment on the victory of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the United States presidential election.

“Traditionally the vice president is in the background, supporting the President,” says Dr. Brock. “This time, Harris knows that Biden is dependent upon her strength for marshalling key segments of the voting population. VP-elect Harris also knows that her political future and credibility lies in being seen to make significance advances for women and people of colour. How will president-elect Biden handle a strong activist and media-savvy VP? The traditional relationship between the President and vice president will be changed creating a new power dynamic in US politics.”
