Vice President Biden meets with Bernie Sanders

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders met with Vice President Joe Biden for about one hour on Thursday at his residence.

In a press release, Sanders’ campaign said the two met to discuss critical issues facing the United States, including campaign finance reform and public education.

“Under the leadership of President Obama and Vice President Biden, this country has come a long way economically since President Bush left office and we were losing 800,000 jobs every month and the world economy was on the brink of financial collapse,” Sanders said.

“I look forward to working with President Obama and Vice President Biden to tackle some of the major issues facing our country.”
