Biden, on final swing through Virginia, takes aim at Romney auto ad

Sterling, Virginia (CNN) - Joe Biden, speaking to an enthusiastic crowd in Virginia Monday, continued his assault on Mitt Romney's T.V. commercial claiming Chrysler is sending Jeep production to China, saying the spot running in Ohio was scaring already-nervous auto workers.

"Now they're trying to scare the living bedevil out of Ohioans. One in eight jobs in Ohio is in the automobile industry," Biden said at the event at a farm in Sterling.
