The Washington Post reported that Biden spoke at the meeting aimed at plotting a strategy for 2016 elections.
“We didn’t do it enough last time. The best way to win is to run on what we’ve done and what we stand for, and run on what more we are trying to do, make it clear what we think we have to do to finish the agenda,” Biden told Democrats, according to the Post.
Biden said he thinks Democrats will win control of the Senate this year and have a chance at taking the House. The party has held a minority of the seats in the House since 2011 and in the Senate since 2015.
“All kidding aside, folks, it’s been a tough last couple cycles. But we should get up, man. There’s a real shot,” he said.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi described it as one of the most “emotional” scenes she’s witnessed.
