Presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s notes were captured by a photographer, revealing some of his thoughts about a potential vice president pick.
As many Americans are eager over who Biden will choose as his running mate and no clear answer from Biden himself yet, his notes appear to show he was prepared to talk about one specific person: Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).
An Associated Press photographer snagged a photo of Biden’s notes following his speech in Wilmington, Delaware, on Tuesday. The notes had Harris’ name followed by “Do not hold grudges,” “Campaigned with me & Jill,” “Talented,” “Great help to campaign” and “Great respect for her.”
This comes after a heated exchange between the two when they clashed over race and busing at a Democratic presidential primary debate in June 2019. Harris previously criticized Biden for the “very hurtful” remarks.

Biden revealed on Tuesday that he will announce who will be his running mate by the end of next week, as IJR reported.
“I’m going to have a choice in the first week in August and I promise I’ll let you know when I do,” the former vice president said.
Aside from Harris, other names of potential vice presidential picks have circulated including Sens. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, Reps. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), Val Demings (D-Fl.), among others.
