An AP photographer snapped a picture of former Vice President Joe Biden at a news conference clutching a collection of notes with references to Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) Tuesday.

What it matters: The photo captures five talking points on Biden's potential running mate: "Do not hold grudges. Campaigned with me & Jill. Talented. Great help to campaign. Great respect for her."

A tweet previously embedded here has been deleted or was tweeted from an account that has been suspended or deleted.
  • While he's made similar remarks about Harris before, these notes come one day after Politico reported that former Sen. Chris Dodd, co-chair of Biden's vice presidential vetting committee, had concerns about the senator associated with the first Democratic presidential debate when she confronted the former VP about his voting record on busing to integrate schools.
  • "The comments attributed to Dodd have drawn condemnation, especially from influential Democratic women who maintain that Harris is being held to a standard that wouldn’t apply to a man running for president," AP notes.
  • Representatives from Biden's and Harris' campaigns did not immediately respond to Axios' requests for comment.

The latest: Biden's Georgia win

President-elect Joe Biden's projected Georgia win will give him 306 electoral votes over President Trump — virtually matching Trump's margin over Hillary Clinton in 2016.

The latest: Trump has not yet conceded after Biden surpassed the 270 electoral vote threshold needed to capture the presidency. Instead, his legal team, led by Rudy Giuliani, has been spinning baseless conspiracy theories and throwing out evidence-free accusations of fraud.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has won Arizona, claiming 11 electoral votes in one of the key swing states in the race for the presidency, AP projects.

Why it matters: Biden is the first Democrat to win Arizona, which Trump won by 3.5% in 2016, since 1996. The victory opens an easier path for Biden to reach 270 electoral votes.

Joe Biden has won the state of Michigan, a key swing state in the race for the presidency, AP projects.

Why it matters: Biden’s flip of the state’s 16 electoral votes comes after a similar victory in Wisconsin — and bodes well for the former vice president’s prospects in the outstanding Rust Belt battleground of Pennsylvania.
