Harris accepts CBS News’ vice presidential debate invitation


The Biden campaign has accepted CBS News’ invitation to participate in a vice presidential debate this summer, the campaign says. 

The Biden campaign says that either the proposed dates of Tuesday, July 23, or Tuesday, August 13 would be acceptable for Vice President Kamala Harris to debate. The Trump campaign has not yet publicly accepted the invitation. And former President Donald Trump has not yet named a running mate. 

“We look forward to the Trump campaign accepting one of these dates so that the full debate calendar for this campaign can be set,” Brian Fallon, campaign communications director for Harris, told reporters. 

CBS News confirmed that President Biden’s campaign accepted its offer to host a vice presidential debate and has extended the same offer to Trump’s campaign. 

Mr. Biden and Trump have agreed to presidential debates on June 27 and Sept. 3. Plans for the debates came together quickly after the president’s campaign said in a letter that he was willing to debate his Republican opponent twice before the November election. That kicked off a series of competing proposals and social media posts from the presumptive Democratic and Republican nominees, culminating in the two debates being scheduled for June and September within a matter of hours.
