      Biden: Infrastructure a win for the nation


      CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden says continued investment in infrastructure is a big win not just for local communities, but the entire nation.

      Biden spoke Monday during a visit to the port in Charleston, S.C., along with Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.


      The two visited a port terminal in nearby Mount Pleasant and spoke with longshoremen before speaking to a crowd of about 300 on the docks.


      Charleston is working on a harbor deepening project expected to cost more than $300 million. Biden says he didn't want to short circuit the study but said he knows what the results will be -- that the harbor should be deepened.


      Later, Biden was heading to Savannah, Ga., to visit the port there. The ports of Charleston and Savannah are in keen competition.
