Senator Harris, who became the first Indian-American and black woman to make history in US politics and to hold the vice presidency of a major party, also greeted Navratri.
“@DouglasEmhoff and I wish our Hindu American friends and family members and everyone who celebrates a very happy Navratri! May this holiday serve as inspiration for all of us to uplift our communities and build a more inclusive and just America,” 55 year old Senator Harris tweeted.
Both Biden and Harris posted greetings to the Hindu community on Twitter, one of the critical voting blocks in this year’s election.
