Vice President Joe Biden was in St. Paul today firing up supporters of DFL gubernatorial candidate Mark Dayton and also helping to raise some money.
At a Macalester College rally, Biden spent most of his 40-minute speech defending the Obama administration’s efforts to turn around the economy. He then urged the crowd to help elect Dayton by going out and telling other voters the truth about Democrats.
Afterwards, Biden headlined a private Dayton fundraiser at a downtown St. Paul hotel. About 300 people attended, with tickets ranging from $150 to $2,000.
Here’s audio of the Biden rally speech:
