Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden called North Carolina a "critical" state in the presidential election and defined the "stark contrast from the top of the ticket down."
"President Obama has a very clearly articulated path with the creation of 4.2 million jobs, 27 months of consecutive job growth," Biden told reporters for his keynote speech at the N.C. Democratic Party convention Saturday. "If you compare this to Mitt Romney, the only answer I have as to his economic (plan) is a return to George W. Bush."
Obama's policies, economists say, are not entirely responsible for the job growth and Republicans rap the president for being out of touch with the economy after he suggest the "private sector is doing fine" compared to public sector job growth.
