Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s presidential campaign blasted out an email to supporters on Wednesday afternoon expressing hope that Mr. Biden “made you proud” in a debate that had yet to take place.

“I’m leaving the fifth Democratic debate now,” says the email, which is signed by Mr. Biden. “I hope I made you proud out there and I hope I made it clear to the world why our campaign is so important.”

Mr. Biden says in the email that “we need more than plans” — potentially previewing, or reviewing, a reference to Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts that he has worked into his campaign appearances.

The email asks supporters if they can make a donation “in response to the debate.”

His team tried to clean things up in a subsequent fundraising plea, saying the earlier blast was “our bad.”

“We know Joe is going to make us proud tonight. We were just so excited for it that we accidentally hit send too soon,” the campaign said in another email.

It’s the latest technological snafu for the campaign of Mr. Biden, who turns 77 years old on Wednesday.

He meandered through the end of a July debate by telling viewers to visit “Joe 30330.” He later said he meant to say “text.”
