ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: As U.S. Vice President Joe Biden hit the campaign trail for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Ohio, a man in the audience in anger over war and what happens on the battlefield shouted, "My friend died," to which Biden responded, "So did my son." Biden's son, former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, died in 2015 after battling brain cancer. He was 46. He served a year-long tour in Iraq as a member of the Delaware Army National Guard. Beau Biden had announced he planned to run for governor of Delaware in 2016. He was diagnosed with brain cancer in August 2013 and underwent surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. After getting a "a clean bill of health" in November of that year, his cancer recurred in the spring of 2015. Vice President Biden, who offered to meet with the man, has been in Ohio making the case for the Clinton Presidency, while stating that Republican Donald Trump "is simply not qualified."
