Joe Biden delivered a forceful rebuttal to criticism about his past stance on busing and his comments about working with segregationist senators, saying he is deeply committed to civil rights.

“I know and you know, I fought my heart out to ensure that civil rights and voting rights, equal rights are enforced everywhere,” Biden said at the Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition convention.
