Biden Forgets Obama Lost North Carolina in 2012

Former vice president Joe Biden falsely claimed Sunday that he and Barack Obama won the state of North Carolina in 2012.

During a Biden campaign event in Durham, Spectrum News reporter Tim Boyum asked Biden how the state fits into his campaign strategy.

"Big time," Biden said. "Because the fact is I think we can win North Carolina. Barack and I won it. Barack won it twice in a row."

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney won North Carolina’s electoral and popular vote in the 2012 election. Obama won the state in 2008.
