Biden Forgets Obama Lost North Carolina in 2012

October 29, 2019

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.
