Biden, 77, was the vp throughout Obama’s two phrases. While Obama has endorsed Biden and his operating mate Senator Kamala Harris by making on-line campaigns for them, this is able to be the primary time that the 59-year-old former president can be campaigning in particular person.

Four years after he left the presidency, Obama due to his oratory expertise, nonetheless stays the largest crowd puller for the opposition Democratic occasion.

This actually is a tipping level, and that momentum solely continues if we win this election. But it is gonna be shut. It might come all the way down to a handful of voters identical to you. So I’m asking you to deliver this factor dwelling. Leave little doubt. Vote early,” he mentioned.
