Capping their first week as a ticket, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), appeared together Friday to sign official documents related to accepting the party’s nomination at next week’s Democratic National Convention. At an event this afternoon, Harris praised Biden’s “audacity to choose a Black woman to be his running mate.”

The Biden-Harris ticket won an endorsement from the letter carriers union, which decried the Trump administration for seeking to “undermine” the U.S. Postal Service.

President Trump spent the morning retweeting attacks on Biden and Harris, as well as praise of himself. He then left for a weekend at his private golf resort in Bedminster, N.J. In the evening, he’ll speak to the City of New York Police Benevolent Association, the largest police union representing New York City law enforcement.

Here are some significant developments:

  • Trump’s opposition to additional funding for the Postal Service puts at risk the nation’s ability to administer the Nov. 3 elections.
  • The Biden campaign plans to deploy Harris to swing states in the coming weeks to connect with Black voters, young activists and suburban women.
  • House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s future is uncertain, as some Republicans worry he has put loyalty to Trump above the GOP conference.
