WASHINGTON, US: Former vice president Joe Biden raised $26 million in the 24 hours for his presidential campaign after he named Senator Kamala Harris as his vice presidential nominee. 

This is also double his previous one-day record and signalling enthusiasm among Democrats following the selection of the first Black woman in a major post. Kamala Harris's nomination also earns him support from Indian Americans who also raised money for his campaign. 

Kamala Harris, 55-year-old Senator based on California, promised to create millions of jobs and fight climate change through a clean energy revolution, bring back critical supply chains so the future is made in America, build on the Affordable Care Act, and women's right to access affordable healthcare.

Kamala Harris remembered her mother Shyamala Gopalan, saying it was she who taught her not to sit and complain and instead do what she can.

She had previously been part of the Democratic presidential race but opted out of the campaign.
