Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday deflected a reporter's question about whether he'll run for president in 2016 during a visit to a New Hampshire business offering job-training programs.

"I'm here about jobs, not mine," Biden said.

New Hampshire is famous for having the first-in-the-nation presidential primaries, and is a favorite destination for potential candidates testing the political waters. Biden, however, was there on an official visit with Labor Secretary Thomas Perez, highlighting retraining for unemployed workers.
