NEW LONDON, CT (WFSB) -

Vice President Joe Biden is known for gaffes, and he did not disappoint during his visit to Connecticut Wednesday.

Biden had come to Connecticut to be the keynote speaker at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy graduation in New London Wednesday morning.

While introducing those in attendance, he misspoke and called Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy "Governor O'Malley."

Martin O'Malley is the Democratic governor of Maryland, who Biden could have mistook Malloy for.

Biden continued with his address and the comment went generally unnoticed.
