Former Vice President Joe Biden says he does not recall kissing a Nevada political candidate on the back of her head in 2014.

The allegation was made in a New York Magazine article written by Lucy Flores, a former Nevada state representative and the 2014 Democratic nominee for Nevada lieutenant governor.

In the article published Friday, Flores wrote that she and Biden were waiting to take the stage during a rally in Las Vegas before the 2014 election.

Spokesman Bill Russo says Biden had no "inkling that Ms. Flores had been at any time uncomfortable."
