Biden Apologizes for the ‘Pain’ and ‘Misconception’ of Segregationist Comments

Biden Apologizes for the ‘Pain’ and ‘Misconception’ of Segregationist Comments Biden Apologizes for the ‘Pain’ and ‘Misconception’ of Segregationist Comments

"If we keep doing that - we should be debating what we do from here".

"Black Americans were excluded from participating in the first industrial revolution and the wealth it generated", said Harris, the daughter of a black father from Jamaica and an Indian mother.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Harris's push to sharpen her message and expand her operation is shifting the overall dynamic of the contest for the Democratic presidential nominee. I talked about school districts should be consolidated in ways that made sense'. Harris also has strongly advocated for combating discriminatory housing.

Though Biden initially doubled down on his comments, he said on Saturday during a campaign speech in Sumter, South Carolina - where black voters made up about 61% of the Democratic primary electorate in 2016 - that he regrets making the statements in June. And she hired 25 additional staffers in New Hampshire.

"Was I wrong a few weeks ago to somehow give the impression to people that I was praising those men whom I successfully opposed time and again?" They know me well.

Harris has also made a less-tangible shift.

Former Vice President Joe Biden admitted Sunday why he waited weeks to apologize for comments about working with segregationist lawmakers in his early days in the U.S. Senate.

At her appearance at a brewery in West Des Moines, the questions were not about race or her conflict with Biden, but about the importance of defeating Trump. Biden will have to improve his performance to stay in the race, she said.

'Sure they were going to come after me. Democrats chose the more "moderate" Bill Clinton.

Giving a speech in SC over the weekend, Biden acknowledged that his remarks may indeed have been hurtful to some people, according to HuffPost. She said that she would continue to show up.

Harris planned to appear in Florence, Hartsville and Myrtle Beach in her ninth trip to SC, having spent more time there than any other state. A strong showing there often has foreshadowed enduring strength nationally with African Americans.

Until now, political strategists in Iowa have said Sens.

Since launching his 2020 campaign in February, the 77-year-old senator has steadily ranked among the top Democratic candidates in early polls. Many now say Harris has joined their ranks.

The phrase has since become an iconic part of the Harris campaign, even emblazoned on t-shirts. Many said they did not hold the infrequency of Harris's visits to the state against her.

"Look, who won last time out? I've grown and I think it's good to be able to grow, to progress".

The polling gap between Biden and Harris was huge going into the debate.

"America in 2019 is a very different place than the America of the 1970s", Biden said, according to prepared remarks. 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.

Kamala Harris raised almost $12 million during the second quarter of the Democratic primary - giving her a financial boost after a fiery debate exchange with Joe Biden.

The Harris campaign added Friday that, of the money she raised this quarter, half a million dollars came from her online store.

After high-profile moments, she has sometimes had to clarify her positions, including her stance on whether private health insurance should be eliminated.

"There's still mandatory busing that exists today", Harris said. The endorsements comes as Harris wraps up a three-day trip across Iowa.

Instead, the event drew 300, leaving an overflow crowd on the lawn to listen to Harris's revamped message over portable speakers.
