Kamala Harris raises $12 million as campaign continues to surge

11 July 2019

Referring to the crowded field of White House hopefuls, the former vice president said: 'I mean, I get all this information about other people's pasts, and what they've done and not done'.

"Growing up here in SC, that's meaningful to us", said Willis, who is white. "But again, that doesn't address the issue of busing in America". The California senator has passed the Vermont senator Bernie Sanders since the first debates, in which she made headlines with an attack on Biden over his past opposition to federally mandated bussing of students, a way to integrate schools.

At a Charleston restaurant on Sunday, he explained that he picked SC as the place where he would apologize, wanting to choose "an audience that would in fact be most likely to have been offended" by the comments.

"Today it is very rare that we require the courts or the federal government to intervene", Harris told reporters Thursday before a campaign event in Indianola, Iowa.

In the Miami debate, Harris was unrelenting in her criticism of Biden, both for his views on bussing and the comments he made 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".

In South Carolina, an early-voting state in the nominating contests that kick off next February, Biden delivered a speech responding to criticism by Harris about his track record on race.

"I never, never, never, ever opposed voluntary busing, ' Mr Biden said, adding that he supported federal legislation to "address root causes of segregation in our schools" and that he was always 'in favor of using federal authority to overcome state-initiated segregation", even in bygone days when it was not popular. "Those are Biden's guys, his men and women". "Not a single dime in my administration will go to them", he promised. "They don't want to talk much about my time as vice president".

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.

Ms. Harris and Mr. Biden have also been at odds over Mr. Biden's past positions on busing to desegregate schools.

The Biden campaign hit back by pointing out Harris' hypocrisy in attacking their candidate for something she apparently now endorses herself. Kamala Harris drew a large crowd of more than 200 during her town hall in Florence Sunday.

He said he wouldn't attack rivals on their past. Joe Biden is a "moderate" like Trotsky was a moderate compared to Lenin.

Biden on Sunday was continuing his campaign tour of SC, the first Southern state to vote in next year's primary and a crucial proving ground for candidates seeking the support of black Democrats.

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. Do you think the American public looked at that debate, take me out of it, and thought, boy, I really liked the way that's being conducted?,' he said.

She said Biden's experience working alongside Obama is a big reason she may support him in 2020: 'I love that'.

"When it comes time to pull the level and for people to actually vote in this presidential election, they're going to make their decisions based not just on who we're associated with, but they're going to make their decisions based on the work we've done and, most importantly, our plans for the future of America", she said.
