Biden tells Granite State house party Obama campaign needs to win the battleground state in 2012.
VP: “It’s not a matter of competing. We have to win New Hampshire.”
Vice President Joe Biden attended an Obama for America house party Wednesday evening in Concord NH after officially filing the President’s paperwork to appear on the NH Presidential Primary ballot.
The motorcade made its way on to Hope Avenue in the city’s south end, to greet with supporters at the home of supporter Dan Feltes who learned the vice president would be attending his previously planned house party a day before.
Biden said the Administration’s plan is to win New Hampshire in the Nov. 2012 general election.
“It’s not a matter of competing we have to win New Hampshire,” he told supporters.
He said the reason he and Obama are running for re-election is “the middle class is being clobbered.”
Biden promised the gathering of about 30 in the modest home that they would “see a lot of us” in the coming months.
