California Sen. Kamala Harris got a lot of love on Tuesday when she was announced the vice presidential nominee for Joe Biden. Many of Harris' competitors for the position sent in their well wishes after Biden made his choice.

For months, speculation has raged about who Biden would choose. Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, California U.S. Rep. Karen Bass, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Florida U.S. Rep. Val Demings, former U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice and Sen. Elizabeth Warren had their names mentioned for the position after Biden announced that his running mate would likely be a woman.  

They have each dealt with a tidal wave of misogyny and racism from the media, Republican opponents and members of Biden's own search committee, as Blavity previously reported. But on Tuesday, Abrams, Bass and Rice came together to congratulate Harris. 

Abrams tweeted a statement in support of Harris and Biden.

Bass also tweeted out some well wishes to Harris. 

Rice, whose name was mentioned late in the vice president conversation, tweeted out praises. 

Bottoms sent out a message as well.

In addition to the Black candidates, Warren released a lengthy statement lauding the choice. 

"I've known Kamala Harris for a long time — from when she took on Wall Street during the financial crisis as Attorney General to working for the people every day as a United States Senator. Throughout her career, she has been unafraid and an inspiration to millions of women who see themselves in her," Warren said.

"As our vice presidential nominee, Kamala is making history. She'll be a great partner to Joe Biden in making our government a powerful force for good in the fight for social, racial and economic justice," she added. 

Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth was also a high-profile candidate for the position. 

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer congratulated both Harris and Biden in her post. 

Despite the Democratic National Convention being held in Wisconsin, Biden will formally accept the nomination from his home state of Delaware due to the coronavirus, WISN reported.
