Biden apologises over comments about segregationists

INDEPENDENCE IA- JULY 04 Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden greets attendees during the Fourth of July parade

And after months of criticism from Democrats in Iowa and New Hampshire who said they felt she had not made them a priority, Harris has hired 35 additional staffers in Iowa in recent days, raising her total in the state to about 65 - one of the largest teams on the ground here, according to people familiar with Iowa campaign operations.

Summers reported from Hartsville, South Carolina. But Catanch, 73, said she wasn't concerned about any critique of Biden's past stances, including on busing, and instead admired what she characterized as Biden's commitment to stay above the fray.

Biden also is highlighting his eight years as Obama's vice president, from 2009 to 2017. The shirts include a childhood photo of Harris, who at the debate discussed her childhood experience with the busing integration of elementary schools in Berkeley, California, in 1968.

Patricia Ousley, 69, a black retired state employee from the Chicago suburb of South Holland, cheered loudly when Biden told the crowd Obama does not get the credit he deserves.

Biden also said that he does not believe in far-left policies other presidential candidates are floating, including canceling all student loan debt and offering tuition-free college.

"We are at a point in our country when we need our leaders to be able to speak towards race issues without falling into a defensive posture or shifting blame", Booker told reporters in New Orleans.

Harris sparred with Biden at the debate for his record on race and on his previous comments about segregationists. "Now I'm Michelle Obama and beloved, but for a minute there I was an "angry black woman" who was emasculating her husband, who was to be feard".

"That's where the federal government must step in", Harris said to Biden during the debate.

'What I didn't see was people who know me. But now, he said, "they've got tons of organizers on the ground".

'Sure they were going to come after me.

De Blasio did not single out O'Rourke, but said "too many Democrats have been cozy with the charter schools".

US Senator Kamala Harris, riding a wave of support after her performance in the first presidential debate, raised almost $12 million in the second quarter of the year which ended on June 30, her campaign has announced.

The Biden campaign hit back by pointing out Harris' hypocrisy in attacking their candidate for something she apparently now endorses herself. But just because there has been a drawing out of the resources in public schools.

Where have we heard that one before?

His reversal, he now says he opposes the amendment, came after rivals and women's rights group blasted him for affirming through campaign aides that he still supported the decades-old budget provision.

"My view on it is that Joe Biden has had his day", said Willis.

Black voters have played a critical role in the Democratic primary process, and winning the party's nomination would be unlikely without their support.

The South Carolina primary is more than seven months away but Biden and Harris appear destined for a showdown there, their campaigns banking on the backing of black voters.

"I think, early on, she didn't have much ground game in Iowa in general", said Scott Putney, the chairman of the Pottawattamie County Democrats, who spoke before Harris at a campaign picnic in Council Bluffs.

The pressures of the presidency are unique in American politics, and it's almost impossible for candidates, regardless of their party, to amass comparable experience as senator, governor or in other positions. "There is still a point of disagreement between he and I, and that remains ... which is the issue of busing".
