COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden is scolding Republicans in Congress, telling Democrats in South Carolina that the new Republican Party is down on America.
 
Biden is questioning what Republicans don't understand about the U.S. and the people who built the country and fought to defend it.
 
He says the one thing all Democrats have in common is an absolute commitment to the middle class.
 
Biden spoke Friday night at an annual fundraising dinner for the South Carolina Democratic Party.
 
He says he knows his appearance will generate buzz about whether he's getting ready for a presidential run. South Carolina usually holds one of the first primary contests and is a frequent stop for potential candidates.
 
But Biden says he came to South Carolina to support Democratic congressman James Clyburn.
