Joe Biden mixes up New Hampshire with ‘scenic beautiful’ Vermont on campaign trail
The Democratic presidential front-runner apparently got the New England neighbors mixed up as he pressed the flesh in Keene, N.H.
“What’s not to love about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it? I mean this is sort of a scenic, beautiful town,” Biden told reporters.
Seconds earlier, the 76-year-old former vice president dismissed concerns about his age.
“If they’re concerned, don’t vote for me,” Biden said.
Keene is only about 10 miles from the Vermont state line. But presidential wannabes spend countless days tramping around New Hampshire to compete in its first-in-the-nation primary, while Vermont is an electoral afterthought.
The misstep was the latest gaffe for Biden, who often strays from his campaign script to bad effect, raising worries among some Democrats about whether he is the best choice to take on President Trump.
