Biden apologizes for comments on segregationists
Former Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday apologized for recent comments about working with segregationist senators in his early days in the U.S. Senate, saying he understands now his remarks could have been offensive to some.
“Was I wrong a few weeks ago?” Biden asked a mostly black audience during a weekend visit to South Carolina. “Yes, I was. I regret it, and I’m sorry for any of the pain or misconception that caused anybody.”
Biden’s comments came as he and rival presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris were set to campaign Sunday in South Carolina.
