BALTIMORE - Vice President Joe Biden says Democrats may have "been given a gift from the Lord" in the form of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

Biden is riffing on the 2016 race as he addresses House Democrats at their annual retreat in Baltimore. Biden says between Cruz and Trump, "I don't know who to root for more."

Many Democrats are hoping that if Republicans nominate an unconventional candidate like Cruz or Trump, Democrats will have an easier time defeating their nominee in the general election.

Biden says he's confident Democrats can win back the Senate in 2016. He says his party can make "great inroads" in winning back House seats and potentially even capture the majority "when nobody expects it."

Biden opted against running for president in 2016.
