Joe Biden Asks People to Support His “United States Senate” Run

Former Vice President and presidential candidate Joe Biden is struggling in the polls after losing his cherished front runner status to Socialist Democrat Bernie Sanders (D-VT).

It seems as though the closer the Democrats get to pick a nominee, and the more Joe Biden speaks, the faster he falls in the polls. Monday at an event in South Carolina, Joe didn’t make this easier on himself, accidentally claiming to be a U.S. Senate candidate, and asking for people to support him. See the cringeworthy video below:

The New York Post covered the scoop:

“I’ve been saying for a long time, it’s not enough to beat Donald Trump. We have to keep the House of Representatives, we have to win back the Senate,” Biden said before predicting that the state’s current senior senator, Republican Lindsey Graham, would lose to Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison.

“Jaime, I’ll come campaign for you or against you, whichever will help you the most,” the gaffe-prone presidential candidate said directly to Harrison, who was seated in the audience.

Biden delivered the shortest remarks of his fellow candidates, but received the longest applause from the audience, according to the Washington Post.

When the South Carolina favorite was wrapping up his speech, he confused which elected office he was seeking.

“You’re the ones who sent Barack Obama the presidency. And I have a simple proposition here: I’m here to ask you for your help. Where I come from, you don’t go very far unless you ask. My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate,” he said.
