Biden to Harris: 'Go easy on me kid'

Biden to Harris: 'Go easy on me kid' Former Vice President Joe Biden greeted his fellow presidential contender Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) at the Democratic debates on Wednesday by telling her to "go easy" on him. "Go easy on me kid," Biden said jokingly as he and Harris shook hands on stage. The rematch comes over a month after Harris confronted Biden over his civil rights record as a senator, specifically on busing. The episode resulted in a boost for Harris in the polls and fundraising, catapulting her into the top tier of the crowded Democratic primary.

The influential Iowa political couple Sue and Bob Dvorsky announced their endorsement on Saturday of California Sen. Kamala Harris for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

The couple has been influential for decades in Johnson County, a liberal stronghold that's home to the University of Iowa and one of the state's most important counties for Democrats.

Political endorsements make for good headlines for campaigns, especially in the middle of a busy weekend where nearly all the candidates are in Iowa.

But the Dvorsky endorsement may matter less for the immediate headline than what the couple could offer — organizational guidance in the first-in-the-nation caucus state.

Bob Dvorsky is a former state senator and his wife, Sue, served as Iowa Democratic Party Chair. Sue Dvorsky is well-known in Democratic circles for her knowledge of the state caucus process and is considered a key influencer in the delegate-rich precincts of Johnson County.

The Dvorskys were early backers of Barack Obama in 2007, helping him win the Iowa caucuses, in an upset over then-front-runner Hillary Clinton. Sue Dvorsky went on to serve as the Johnson County co-chair for the Obama campaign.

In the 2016 cycle, the Dvorskys supported Hillary Clinton.

Harris has renewed her focus on Iowa, rolling out a six-figure ad buy on Thursday. The ad, airing on television and in digital media, is running as Harris crosses the state in what her campaign is calling a river-to-river, multi-city trip across Iowa.
