SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) – The second most powerful man in America paid a quick visit to Utah.
Vice-President Joe Biden held a fundraiser Tuesday night in Park City.
But both on the Democrat and Republican side, there is increasingly displeasure that Utah is becoming a bit of a political ATM.
Now, we're not picking on the Vice-President.
The truth is, there's some Democratic grumbling that Joe Biden didn't hold a public event.
One Park City woman we talked to across the street from the Biden event told me,
“I really think it’s unnecessary. I am not for raising money for campaigns. I think the money could be spent differently.”
But we've also heard similar Republican unhappiness about Mitt Romney.
Specifically, that he sometimes visits Utah, does a quick photo op, but the real face time is for those who donate thousands of dollars.
However, we did run into some bite sized Biden-ites (kids) in Park City.
They didn't seem to be too worried about Utah being used an ATM.
Instead, they thought the Vice-President's visit was A-ok.
In fact, they waved homemade signs as the Vice-President drove by.
This was the exchange we had with one of them, a ten year old:
ABC 4: “In November, are you going to vote for Vice-President Biden?”
Alex (10 years old): “Um, I am not hold enough to vote yet. But if I were, probably yes.”
ABC 4: “Probably?”
Alex: (reconsiders for a moment) Yes!
