Biden’s Two Gaffes in Eau Claire
First of all, good to see that it wasn’t hard to get 3,000 people on a college campus. You start to wonder if my alma mater is incapable of pulling it off, then you remember it’s a college campus and you move on.
So of course, Vice President Biden was in Eau Claire today, and according to the WisPolitics.com report, naturally made some gaffes.
Here’s where they were:
Biden was preceded by Sen. Kathleen Vineout, D-Alma, and 7th CD candidate Pat Kreitlow. Biden told those in attendance to vote for Kreitlow, though he mispronounced his name.
My guess is it was “Kreet-Low?” Yeah, I know those German names are so tough, aren’t they? Especially for the crowd in the East Coast…I should know.
Way to be prepped there Mr. Vice President.
Secondly, the campus of UW-Eau Claire and the overwhelming majority of Eau Claire County are in the 3rd Congressional District, not the 7th where Kreitlow is running. Has been like that for decades.
Hardly anyone in the gymnasium today will end up being eligible to vote for Kreitlow.
