Vice President's Son, Beau Biden, Campaigns In Greenville

The son of Vice President Joe Biden was here in Eastern Carolina Saturday, to launch early vote canvassing efforts for President Obama.

Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden and retired Marine Corps Sergeant Major John Estrada made an appearance at the president's field office in Greenville.

The two kicked off early vote canvassing as part of their veterans and military families for Obama tour.

Biden, a Major in the Delaware National Guard, and Estrada, the former highest ranking enlisted member of the Corps, say that Mitt Romney's plans would short change veterans looking for care, and that the president has their best interests in mind.

"That's why the President of the United States has increased funding for the V.A. more than any president has in 30 years, out of the half million additional veterans here before that hadn't been covered," said Biden, "And, a small business tax credit up to 10 thousand dollars for small businesses in places like Greenville to hire veterans."

"The votes in Eastern Carolina are extremely important, we have a lot of veterans in this area, that's why we're here. The importance of getting the right message also, the veterans and their families, their friends know the facts, too many times they don't know the facts. And once they know the facts, they will see president Obama stands by our veterans our military and their families," said Estrada.

Biden says the Romney/Ryan budget would cut 20% or around 11 billion dollars in the first year from veteran affairs.
