In a speech in Toledo, Ohio on Monday, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden declared that he is running “for the Senate”- repeating a mistake he made earlier this year.

The former vice president and Delaware senator made the gaffe at the end of a campaign speech:

“And, America, we can do anything that we need to do if we can do it together. Nothing can stop us. You know, we have to come together.

“That’s why I’m running – I’m running as a proud Democrat for the Senate.

“And, I ran as a proud Democrat for vice president. I’m running as a proud Democrat for president.

“But, I promise you this: I will govern as an American president. I will govern for everybody who voted for me as well as against me.”

This isn’t the first time Biden has forgotten that he’s now running for the presidency, not the Senate. On February 25, 2020, while campaigning in South Carolina, Biden said:

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over – if you like what you see, help out, if not, vote for the other guy. Give me a look though, okay?”

At the end of Monday’s Ohio speech, Biden appeared to be confused about his next move, asking, “Which way am I going?”
