Joe Biden to campaign in person in key states

The Democratic candidate for the White House, who has been running a virtual campaign since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, announced on Thursday that he would visit Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania or even Arizona in person, while remaining “responsible”.

Joe Biden announced Thursday, August 27 that he would resume the field campaign in key states before the presidential election on November 3, breaking with his position of great caution in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Much more present on the ground, his opponent Donald Trump regularly taunts the one he nicknames “the sleeping Joe” for having remained strictly confined to his home, in Delaware, for more than two months from March and having since limited his travels to his state and neighboring Pennsylvania.

“I will travel across the country, where it will be possible to do so by following state rules” on gatherings to limit the spread of the new coronavirus, the 77-year-old Democratic candidate said during a fundraiser online.

“Responsible”

“One of the things we think about is that I go to Wisconsin, and Minnesota, spend time in Pennsylvania, Arizona,” he added of those states that might determine the ‘outcome of the ballot. “But we are going to do it in a way that is totally responsible, unlike what this guy does,” said the former vice-president of the Republican head of state.

The 74-year-old billionaire briefly resumed meetings in June before once again interrupting this type of large gathering. However, he continues to crisscross the country aboard Air Force One to give speeches to supporters.
