No Stranger to ‘Firsts,’ Councilmember Navarro Applauds Harris Nomination

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden announced Tuesday that he had chosen California Sen. Kamala Harris to be his running-vice president. 

If elected, Harris would be the first woman and person of color to be vice president. The historic pick is personal for one Montgomery County Councilmember in particular.

Councilmember Navarro spoke with MyMCMedia about what the Harris pick means:
