Another Democratic presidential hopeful is adding her thoughts to the ongoing spat between Kamala Harris and Joe Biden over the latter’s civil rights record.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, weighed with a tweet on Monday referencing an exchange in the recent debate.

“But let’s get real,” she wrote in response to a post from CNN contributor David Axelrod. “It wasn’t a ‘whole thing’ — it was a false accusation that Joe Biden is a racist.”

Harris’ team quickly responded, challenging Gabbard’s assertion.

“She literally said in the debate: ‘I do not believe you are a racist,'” spokesperson Ian Sams said of senator’s debate line.
