BREAKING NEWS – Delaware, Dover – After more than five months of mostly virtual campaigning amid the coronavirus pandemic, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said he will resume in-person campaigning next month, with stops in some of the crucial general election battleground states.

The former vice president announced during a virtual fundraiser on Thursday that he plans on holding in-person events after Labor Day “without jeopardizing or violating state rules about how many people can in fact assemble.”

“I won’t take any risks like President Trump did with the crowd that gathered on the White House lawn on the last day of RNC convention,” explained Biden. “Fortunately for me, even before the coronavirus, no more than twenty people ever came to see me, and half of those are usually paid staff members on my campaign team. Yes, it’s embarrassing, but it’s also safe.”
