Biden In Iowa: Stop March Of Tea Party Keep Senate In Dem Hands

Vice President Joe Biden campaigning in Davenport, Iowa for Democrat US Senate candidate [mc_name name=’Rep. Bruce Braley (D-IA)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’B001259′ ] said that if Democrats maintain control of the Senate it would stop the march of the Tea Party and force the Republican Party to become Democrats-lite once more and compromise in favor of expanding the federal government and placing future generations in more debt.

Braley has been trailing Republican state Sen. Joni Ernst in the latest polling, but Braley is still within the margin of error in a Senate race that will likely decide which party controls the Senate.

Biden also went after the Tea Party, saying that voters can “stop the march of the hard right” by helping Democrats regain control of the Senate on November 4th.

He said if Democrats maintain their Senate majority, “You are going to see reasonable people in the Republican Party start to vote reasonably again.” Biden said if Republicans win control, the party will resist compromises.

“This is not your father’s Republican party,” Biden said.  “This is a different breed of cat.  They’re not bad or good, just different — really, really different.”
