Biden said he’d win the Senate, and then went to Iowa and held a rally.
But if he won the Iowa caucuses, he would be a disaster.
“I will not lose in the state of Iowa,” Biden said.
“That’s why I’ll be running in the general election.
I’ll take this job.”
The VP was in Iowa on Wednesday to hold a town hall with the Des Moines Register and Iowa Democratic Party volunteers.
In a short statement, Biden called his campaign a “great organization.”
Biden did not endorse a candidate.
But he said he was happy to have been able to “talk with and learn from a group of Iowa Democrats, a group that is energized and ready to get back on the campaign trail.”
In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Biden’s campaign said that the VP’s plan was to be on the trail with voters throughout Iowa, “just like he’s done all over the country.”
Biden has been running in Iowa since mid-February.
He held a campaign rally in the Hawkeye State last week.
The Iowa caucuses are in May, and the winner of the general race will face off against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in the fall.
