President Obama tweeted a message of personal support for Vice President Biden on Thursday night, just more than a week after Biden comments on the camaign trail led to controversy.
Today marks four years since I chose— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) Aug. 24, 2012
@joebiden to be my running mate. Here’s to an outstanding Vice President and a great friend. –bo
The tweet is signed "-bo" to indicate the president sent it himself.
Obama has denied that Biden will be replaced on the presidential ticket.
On Aug. 23, 2008, then-Sen. Obama (Ill.) announced then-Sen. Biden (Del.) as his vice presidential pick. Obama's campaign announced his choice of running mate via text and email messages to supporters and then at a rally in Springfield, Ill.
