Sen. Kamala Harris topped a list of handwritten notes by presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, alongside cryptic talking points like “do not hold grudges” and “great help to campaign.”

Biden is expected to announce his pick for vice president in the coming weeks following months of anticipation. On the shortlist for his running mate is Harris, who is among a “highly qualified and “diverse” group, citing his notes.

A photographer for the Associated Press captured Biden’s notes at a campaign event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Tuesday. Under Harris’ name, Biden listed five talking points: “do not hold grudges,” “campaigned with me and Jill,” “talented,” “great help to campaign,” and “great respect for her.”

While Biden did not field any questions specifically about Harris, the notes could be in response to a member of his vice presidential search committee expressing concern about Harris as Biden’s running mate, Politico reported Monday.

In a conversation with Harris, former Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd reportedly said she had “no remorse” after discussing a heated exchange between her and Biden on the debate stage last year, where she denounced Biden’s opposition to busing.

“There was a little girl in California who was a part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day,” she said at the time. “And that little girl was me.”

Their relationship has grown to be much more amicable since the debate, as Harris has been supportive of Biden and his campaign, and the former vice president has spoken fondly of her.
