Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont met with Vice President Joseph R. Biden for about an hour Thursday at Mr. Biden’s residence, and the two addressed issues like campaign finance reform and public education.

“Under the leadership of President Obama and Vice President Biden, this country has come a long way economically since President Bush left office, and we were losing 800,000 jobs every month, and the world economy was on the brink of financial collapse,” Mr. Sanders said. “Nevertheless, we still have a long way to go to create the kind of economy that works for all Americans and not just the top 1 percent.”

Earlier this month, Mr. Biden announced he would not enter the race for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. Mr. Sanders has emerged as the chief rival of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in the race.

“I look forward to working with President Obama and Vice President Biden to tackle some of the major issues facing our country,” Mr. Sanders said.
