CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker once praised White House hopeful Kamala Harris during a 2009 breakfast held at NBC's Rockefeller Plaza, according to a report by India Abroad, a media outlet that has covered Harris' political rise because of her Indian heritage.

McClatchy unearthed the report.

CNN will host the second 2020 Democratic presidential debate this week.

Zucker in 2009 was the CEO of NBC Universal when he attended the breakfast with Harris.  

"Kamala is not just important for the city of San Francisco, the state of California, but for the entire country," Zucker told attendees at the posh breakfast, according to McClatchy.

CNN spokesperson Allison Gollust told McClatchy that Zucker hosted Harris when she was the district attorney of San Francisco.

"He was then CEO of NBC Universal, and was introducing the D.A. to some of his colleagues in an informal setting," she added. "He has seen her a handful of times in the last 10 years, all in his capacity as a journalist. His relationship with the senator is no different than any other national politician, and he has never endorsed her, or anyone, in any capacity."

McClatchy noted Zucker reportedly also called Harris "unbelievably special" and "incredibly exciting."
