Warren and other Democrats said they listened to Biden’s denial during an MSNBC interview last week and are satisfied with the former vice president’s response to Reade’s claim.
“The vice president’s answers were credible and convincing,” Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat and former candidate for president, told reporters as she headed into the chamber to vote. “I support the vice president. I support his campaign, and I am proud to endorse him for president.”
