She was asked during a campaign stop in New Hampshire about a 2001 vote she made that was supported by the credit card industry, according to The Wall Street Journal.
 
Consumer activists argued the bill would make it harder for consumers to hold credit card companies accountable.
 
"It was Vice President Biden who was the senator from Delaware and the Republican co-sponsor that I was talking with, so I said I’d support it even though I’d opposed it before," Clinton said, according to The Journal. The bill did not end up passing, she added.
 
Biden is considering a White House run. Clinton, the Democratic front-runner, has dipped in the polls but remains in the lead.
