Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., is “very much in contention” to be former Vice President Joe Biden’s running mate despite their confrontation during the Democratic primary debates.

 “Now, I don't hold grudges,” Biden said, during an interview with CBS News’ Errol Barnett that aired Thursday, as part of the virtual convention for the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, when asked about comments made about Harris by a member of his vice presidential search committee.

“I've made it really clear that I don't hold grudges,” he added. “I think it was a debate, it was as simple as that. And she's very much in contention.”

Biden was recently photographed holding notes listing several talking points regarding Harris, including: “Do not hold grudges.” “Campaigned with me & Jill.” “Talented.” “Great help to campaign.” “Great respect for her.”

Former Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd said last month that Harris expressed “no remorse” about confronting Biden during the first Democratic primary debate, taking him to task for his past stance on busing and his comments about working with segregationists in Congress.

Biden said on Thursday, that Dodd “didn't say that to the press, he was talking to somebody offline, and it was repeated.”

Harris endorsed Biden last March, just before Michigan’s primary, saying: “I believe in Joe. I know Joe. And that’s why I’m supporting him.”
