The Vice President's office apparently does not employ a copy editor. If it did, that person would likely have caught an embarrassing error on Joe Biden's schedule before it went out to reporters.
The New York Daily News reports that a news release "widely distributed" to the media said Biden will attend campaign events in "Road Island."
Of course it is "Rhode Island." The writer may well have used spell-check, but since "road" is actually a word it wouldn't have popped up as a mistake.
Biden's office has not commented on the error.
