Romney: Biden ‘Doubling Down on Denial’ of Libya Failures
After a new Virginia poll showed Romney with a 7-point lead over Obama in the state, Mitt Romney campaigned in Richmond, Virginia on Friday and put more pressure on the Obama administration to tell Americans the truth about what they knew before terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Libya, killing Chris Stevens, the U.S. Ambassador to Libya.
Romney said Vice President Joe Biden “directly contradicted the sworn testimony of State Department officials” during his debate with Paul Ryan on Thursday.
“He’s doubling down on denial,” Romney said.
Romney said Americans have a “right to know” what happened leading up to the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Libya, and “we’re going to find out.”
