YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton have criticized Mitt Romney for saying that Chrysler is shifting production of its Jeep brand autos from Ohio to China.
Jeep, a major employer in Ohio, has said it is adding jobs in China to meet growing demand there but is not halting production in North America.
Campaigning together in the crucial swing state, Clinton said that Jeep has called Romney's claim "the biggest load of bull in the world."
Biden said it was "bizarre."
Clinton, who had been scheduled to appear with President Barack Obama, said Obama was personally offended by Romney's claim. Clinton says Obama's first car was a Jeep.
Obama canceled scheduled appearances with Clinton in Florida and Ohio on Monday, citing Hurricane Sandy.
