‘Why wouldn’t I come down to Virginia?’: Jill Biden visits Richmond area

2020 Election

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Jill Biden traveled to the Richmond and Hampton Roads areas on Wednesday and Thursday to promote her husband’s campaign during early voting.

Biden and Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney held an event at 3:30 p.m. at the City of Richmond Registrar’s Office on Laburnum Avenue. According to a press release from the Biden-Harris campaign, each event attended by Biden was intended to address how the campaign hopes to lead the country through the pandemic and help working families.

After leaving the Registrar’s Office Biden attended a working moms roundtable in Henrico County at 4:30 p.m.

“Why wouldn’t I come down to Virginia?” Biden said. She teaches at a community college in Northern Virginia.

At the event in Henrico Biden said she and her husband will visit the casket of Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday. She says it is frightening thinking about the possibility of Pres. Donald Trump getting a new Supreme Court Justice nominee approved before the election. “I guess we’re going to have to wait until the next opening,” Biden said.

The former second lady also addressed recent concerns about a peaceful transition of power if Trump loses the November Election. “We’re just hoping it’s a peaceful transition,” said Biden. “I know Joe Biden will insist that it’s a peaceful transition.”

She says they won’t be taking any vote for granted and that every vote counts. Biden says, “one vote could win an election.”
