WILMINGTON, — In the final stretch of his search for a Vice-President, the Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden kept a tight lip on Tuesday.

Although he had little to say, Joe Biden had plenty of words to share about one leading contender: California Senator Kamala Harris.

An Associated Press photographer captured Joe Biden’s notes as the Democratic Presidential Nominee took questions from reporters.

The notes revealed five talking points with the name Kamala Harris written across the top.

“Do not hold grudges.” “Campaigned with me & Jill.” “Talented.” “Great help to campaign.” “Great respect for her.”

Those are all observations Biden has made about Harris before.

But they take on new significance following a recent Politico report.

In it, one of Biden's closest friends and a co-chair of his vice presidential vetting committee, former Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd, still harbors concerns about Kamala Harris' tough debate stage performance and that she hasn't expressed regret.

The comments attributed to Dodd have drawn condemnation, especially from influential Democratic women who maintain that Kamala Harris is being held to a standard that wouldn’t apply to a man running for president.

The debate-stage skirmish was one of the seminal moments of the Democratic primary.

Kamala Harris, who is Black, said Biden made “very hurtful” comments about his past work with segregationist senators before she slammed his opposition to busing as schools began to integrate.

“There was a little girl in California who was a part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day,” she said. “And that little girl was me.”

At the time, Biden called her comments “a mischaracterization of my position.”
