"Look who won last time out", Biden told CNN.

US Senator Kamala Harris of California, who emerged as a top contender for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination after last week's presidential debate, said her campaign raised almost $12 million during the most recent fundraising quarter.

Despite attacking Biden in her debate tirade for not supporting federally mandated busing decades ago, Harris backtracked on the issue herself this week.

Harris went after Biden on his civil rights record during the debate, in a move that defined the night and propelled the California senator in the polls. Biden said, mentioning his plan to triple federal education funding to help school districts with lower-income students.

"That's what this election is about".

"I'm looking forward to this, man", Biden said. And by the way, I think Ocasio-Cortez is a brilliant, bright woman, but she won a primary.

Pressed about his ability to take on Trump in a hypothetical general election matchup following his bruising debate performance, Biden sought to dispel any concerns.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (2nd R), Democrat of NY, speaks alongside US Senator Bernie Sanders (2nd L), Independent of Vermont, and Representative Ilhan Omar (L), Democrat of Minnesota, during a press conference to introduce college affordability legislation outside the Capitol in Washington, D.C., June 24, 2019.

Joe Biden seems to be more than a little skeptical about the rise of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) - and whether she should serve as a standard bearer for the Democratic party going forward.

Before taking on Trump, however, Biden will need to get through the crowded field of Democrats who are also vying for a chance to challenge the Republican President. "Where it's not is way left".

"I think of busing as being in the toolbox of what is available and what can be used for the goal of desegregating America's schools", Harris said in response to a question from a reporter.

At some point, the discussion over an issue which was primarily in practice in the 1960s becomes a surreal topic on the campaign trail in 2019.

The campaign added that more than $7 million was raised online and that the average contribution during the second quarter was $39, with an average of $24 for online donations. Elizabeth Warren, have fully embraced Medicare for All. "I just don't like being taken advantage of by other countries, by pharmaceutical companies, by all of the people that have taken advantage of this country", he said.

Biden declared, "She's a good person, she is smart as can be, and she feels strongly". "So if you look at what he's done, and if you look at what we've straightened out-I call it the Obama-Biden mess". The former vice president argued that most Democratic voters are "center-left" not "way left".

He also took issue with decriminalizing crossing the border without documentation, an idea first floated by former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro as a way to stop separating families at the US-Mexico border.

"I get all this information about other people's past, and what they've done and not done".

Unlike the draft-avoider Trump, who had the nerve on Thursday to urge Americans to join the armed forces (I kid you not), the presidential candidates did not militarize the holiday.
