In this March 21, 2012 file photo, Vice President Joe Biden speaks at Mellon Auditorium in Washington. Leaked Democratic National Committee emails show that DNC staffers floated the idea of asking Biden to speak at a rally in Raleigh, North Carolina, opposing the state’s HB2 law, which requires people using government restrooms to use the bathroom that corresponds with the gender and their birth certificate.
