Tampeños celebrated the Biden-Harris win outside Casa Biden in West Tampa


More than 75 million voters are headed into the work week with a sweet hangover all thanks to Saturday.

That’s when the Associated Press called the 2020 presidential election for the ticket with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on it. With the win, Harris, a mixed-race daughter of an Indian mother and Jamaican father becomes the first woman to become Vice President. As the New York Times points out, she has now risen “higher in the country’s leadership than any woman ever before her.” (As NPR has pointed out, Charles Curtis, Herbert Hoover’s vice president, was member of Kaw Nation, making him the first person of color to hold that office.)Trump, poetically, was headed to a golf course when he heard the news.

Cheeto also spent Sunday golfing, but to celebrate, some Tampeños spent Saturday night partying outside Casa Biden campaign office in West Tampa. —Ray Roa
