    Vice President Joe Biden made two stops in Dallas Wednesday. The first was at a fundraiser in Highland Park.

    Biden told the group that much is at stake in this election and what happened in Charlottesville motivated him to run.

    Biden then headed to an event in Dallas. He was introduced by Mayor Mike Rawlings, who told the Dallas Morning News that he was supporting Biden for President. The Former Vice President spoke to a group of students who are part of the Mayor's Intern Fellows Program. Biden spoke to them about their future, as well as his past.

    "I didn't start off thinking I am going to run for public office," said Biden, adding, "what in fact animates your passion, what do you really care about."

    Reporters tried to talk to Biden about Robert Mueller's news conference in Washington, but Biden did not stop to take any questions.
