Former Vice President Joe Biden reassured his supporters that he was “not going nuts” during a campaign stop in New Hampshire over the weekend following a series of gaffes and misstatements.

Biden was speaking at a campground in New Hampshire when he seemed to forget where he had last spoken at Dartmouth College, according to the Los Angeles Times.

As he seemed confused about where on campus he previously was, he said, “I want to be clear, I’m not going nuts.”

“I’m not sure whether it was the medical school or where the hell I spoke. But it was on the campus.”

Indeed, Biden has faced questions about his age and his penchant for making strange remarks and mistakes on the campaign trail. (RELATED: Joe Biden’s Recent Gaffes Are Not Uncommon For Him)

The 76-year-old Democrat said recently seemed to forget which state he was campaigning in, mistakenly claiming that he was in Vermont when he was in New Hampshire.

The Delaware politician also mistakenly said that his health care plan would be “not quality,” as well as claiming that Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy were assassinated in the “in the ’70s, late 70.”

He’s also been spotted stuttering and stumbling over his words. (RELATED: ‘There’s An Awful Lot’ Of Somalis Driving Cabs, Says Joe Biden)

This weekend, Biden was asked about voters who are worried about his age, and his message was simple, “I say if they’re concerned, don’t vote for me.”
