Biden in Detroit: Romney out of touch with workers

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

Vice President Joe Biden is using a Labor Day rally in Detroit to portray President Barack Obama's re-election campaign as a battle to defend the interest of working people from a Republican attack.

Thousands of union supporters marched under sunny skies Monday in the annual Metro Detroit AFL-CIO Labor Day parade, leading up to the rally.

Biden says Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is out of touch with working people and says Democrats seek to replace "outsourcing with insourcing" to retain U.S. jobs.

Biden's speech is the latest of several in Michigan this summer. He addressed the American Federation of Teachers' Detroit national convention July 29 and spoke at a rally at Detroit Renaissance High School on Aug. 22. Obama attended at last year's Detroit Labor Day observance.
