The former vice president is leading the pack of more than 20 Democratic presidential hopefuls. And in fending off some criticism he's received from progressives in Congress, he says the party needs someone moderate to take on Trump.

"You had overwhelming response from the African American community in my state", Biden said of his time as a senator in Delaware. In the general election fights, who won? Biden said in a wide-ranging CNN interview. "Mainstream Democrats who were very progressive on social issues, and very strong on education, health care". "I even went so far, in the middle of that busing controversy, as saying use helicopters if that was necessary to make the point". But she won a primary.

On Wednesday, Harris told reporters in Iowa that busing students should be considered as a policy by local school districts, rather than through a federal mandate like the type she advocated when confronting Biden. Once around 32 percent, the Democrat now averages around 27 percent, according to a Real Clear Politics average of the most recent polls.

Kudlow later backed away slightly from his timeline, saying that the face-to-face talks would begin "soon". The US has 25 percent tariffs on US$250 billion of Chinese goods ranging from semiconductors to furniture.

Kamala Harris' (D-CA) communications director, commented Friday on CNN's "New Day" on the continued spar over busing between Harris and opponent former Vice President Joe Biden.

"It's disappointing that Senator Harris chose to distort Vice President Biden's position on busing", tweeted Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield, "particularly now that she is tying herself in knots trying not to answer the very question she posed to him!". Her average poll numbers are now almost 15 percent-the same as independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Asked if the busing brouhaha is a distraction when it's not at the top of any voters' list of top priorities, Adams said, "Frankly, I don't think you and I would be talking about it today if the vice president's team hadn't been attacking Sen". While the exchange helped vault Harris in several polls, Biden stood by his record on the issue and told Cuomo busing proved to be an unsuccessful experiment.
