Vice President Joe Biden says that he has spoken privately with three potential Republican presidential nominees who have expressed their frustration with the current state of the presidential race in their party.

“I will not mention them, but I promise you, I’ve spoken to three of the presidential potential nominees on the Republican side who tell me, ‘Joe it’s crazy, this is absolutely crazy,’” Biden said in an interview with NBC Connecticut’s Keisha Grant.

Biden began to discuss the presidential race, but cut himself off as he began to criticize Ted Cruz and Donald Trump.

“The kinds of things that Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are saying are so inconsistent with…” he said, before stopping himself.

“Well we’ll see what the election says but it not been a very illuminating campaign so far,” he concluded.
