Vice president Joe Biden will be attending a fundraiser for Sen. Barbara Boxer today in California’s Orange County — and he’s receiving a special welcome from Republican candidate Carly Fiorina.
Fiorina’s campaign has released a web video, “Political Point,” that reminds Biden that Boxer voted against the 2007 bill that included funding for body armor and brain trauma treatment for the troops. It includes a clip of Biden railing against those who voted against the bill to score “political points.” “There’s no political point worth my son’s life. There’s no political point worth anybody’s life out there,” Biden argued. See it here:
In a statement, Fiorina press secretary Andrea Saul denounced both Biden and Boxer, saying that “both have come to embrace the Washington Buddy system; instead of working together to address California’s devastating 12.4 percent unemployment rate, Joe Biden and Barbara Boxer are holding out their hands to the special interests in an effort to save the only job Boxer cares about: her own.”
