President-elect Joe Biden and Vice-President elect Sen. Kamala Harris were named Time magazine’s 2020 ‘Person of the Year.’
Each year, the award is given to “an individual or group of people who affected the news or our lives the most, for better or worse.”
Biden and Harris made history when they defeated Donald Trump and Mike Pence in the November presidential election. It is the first time in this nation’s history that we’ll see a female VP and one of Asian and African descent. Their ticket was also the first in history to get more than 80 million votes. They even made history with this announcement, it is the first time ever that a VP has been named the ‘Person of the Year.’
“Biden and Harris share a faith that empathetic governance can restore the solidarity we’ve lost,” the Magazine wrote in its tribute to the winners.
“The Biden-Harris ticket represents something historic. Person of the Year is not just about the year that was, but about where we’re headed,” Time magazine tweeted.
