Biden on the fundraising trail as the Boston ordeal ends.
Biden says response to tragedies ‘incredible’
DETROIT (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday said the strength of those devastated by the Boston Marathon bombing, Texas plant explosion and Connecticut school shooting is remarkable and proof that some good can come from carnage and pain.
“It showed the incredible resilience, heroism, commitment and love of the people who responded to these tragedies,” Biden said at a major fundraiser for Democrats in Michigan, which could play a big role in the 2016 presidential election.
Biden said winning back the Republican-controlled House in 2014 is crucial and that the American people are on the side of expanded background checks for gun purchases.
In May, Biden will keynote a Democratic fundraising dinner in South Carolina, which traditionally holds one of the first primaries of the season.
Turning the events into campaign material… now that’s incredible!
