“Go easy on me, kid,” Biden said jokingly as he and Harris shook hands on stage. 

Harris’ national press secretary, Ian Sams, questioned Biden’s comments on Twitter, asking why the former vice president referred to the senator as “kid.”  

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. 

Biden, who has been a front runner in the race since he entered in April, was put on the defensive, and said he didn’t expect Harris to go after him the way that she did. 

“I was prepared for them to come after me, but I wasn’t prepared for the person coming at me the way she came at me,” Biden told CNN’s Chris Cuomo in an interview.
