Biden campaigns in Wisconsin

Nov. 2, 2012 at 6:57 PM

BELOIT, Wis., Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Vice President Biden campaigned Friday in Beloit, Wis., 10 miles from the hometown of the man who wants to replace him, GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan.

The vice president spent most of his speech attacking Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and said little about Romney's running mate, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Politico reported.

Biden reminded supporters of his own "middle-class roots" when he said something about Romney making $20 thousand last year and then corrected it to $20 million.

"The town I lived in didn't make $20 million," Biden, who grew up in Scranton, Pa., said.

About 1,100 enthusiastic supporters greeted Biden, the Beloit News said.

Biden reminded the crowd of the long-term consequences of the election, including Supreme Court appointments.
