While the Democrats have attempted to hide who will be selected as the vice presidential candidate for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, a number of foolish mistakes on their part have made it nearly impossible for them to hide it any longer.

Joe Biden was a little too loose with his notes when an Associated Press photographer captured a clear shot of his notes which appear to suggest that Senator Kamala Harris will be the pick.

The AP photographer grabbed a shot of Biden’s handwritten notes showing a section titled “Kamala Harris,” which was followed by a list of attributes.

“Do not hold grudges.” “Campaigned with me & Jill.” “Talented.” “Great help to campaign.” “Great respect for her.”

Biden’s notes only add to suspicion that Harris will be the pick after left-leaning media outlet Politico accidently released a report days early which was dated August 1 and said that Biden chose Harris as his VP.

“Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris to become his running mate for the 2020 election on Aug. 1, two weeks before the Democratic National Convention, after keeping his choice close to the chest for months,” Politico wrote.

“In his announcement, Biden called Harris ‘a worthy opponent and a worthy running mate,’ alluding to the pair’s rivalry during the earlier stages of the Democratic primary. She will bring her experience as a prosecutor, household name recognition, and skill as a debater to the ticket,” the deleted politico report read.

Though the outlet removed the story – the damage had already been done.

Politico issued an apology, saying on Tuesday night that they regretted the “error and any confusion that is caused,” an AP story released that same evening said something similar.

Brad Dayspring, Politico’s VP of marketing and communication, attempted to claim that this was a mistaken use of “placeholder text” which was accidentally published.

“Placeholder text was mistakenly published to the site,” Dayspring said. “Our standard practice is to use ‘lorem ipsum’ as placeholder text. In this instance, that did not happen. We regret the error and any confusion that it caused.”

Harris, a presidential candidate before dropping out in 2019, has endorsed and campaigned for Biden since March. But she once was one of his most ardent opponents on the campaign trail, criticizing his stance on busing for school integration in the 1970s.

“Do you agree today that you were wrong to oppose busing in America?” Harris asked Biden on a debate stage in Miami in June 2019.

Biden cried out claiming her comments were “a mischaracterization” of his position.

“There are moments in history where states fail to support the civil rights of people,” Harris responded.

Harris and Biden’s relationship has become amicable since, and in a CBS interview shortly after the debate last year she said that she still had a “great deal of respect” for him.

Biden has also publicly commended Harris and noted that he had a personal and professional admiration for the senator, who had a close friendship with his late son Beau Biden when they were both state prosecutors.

“I’m not good at keeping hard feelings,” Biden said in December after Harris dropped out. “Senator Harris has the capacity to be anything she wants to be,” he added.

At this point, the evidence suggests that Harris is a near lock to be Biden’s VP pick.
