Jill Biden spent Thursday in Virginia, starting her day meeting with educators and military leaders in Hampton Roads, then heading to Richmond where she met Mayor Levar Stoney in front of the Voter Registrar’s Office, and then going to Henrico with Virginia House Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn (D- Fairfax) for a round-table with working mothers.
In Hampton Roads, she touted her husband’s policy on education. Biden said, “This crisis has shown us the deep inequity in our system especially for children of color and low-income communities. Many lack the technology including broad access to broadband,” Wavy.com reports.
In Richmond, Biden and Stoney waved as supporters paraded by in their cars. Biden said “This, I know that it sounds trite, but this is the most important election of anyone’s lifetime and the election really is taking place right now.” According to 12OnYourSide, Biden said her husband’s campaign isn’t taking Virginia for granted. “Why wouldn’t I come down to Virginia?” Biden asked ABC8News reporters. Biden emphasized that every vote counts to her husband Joe Biden. “One vote could win an election.”
At the Henrico roundtable, Jill Biden spoke about how the Biden-Harris ticket would benefit working mothers. Filler-Corn tweeted, “Incredible honor to introduce the next First Lady of the United States, Jill Biden, today in Henrico! @DrBiden listening from working VA moms, including @debrarodmanva, on how @joebiden and @kamalaharris can help our Commonwealth #buildbackbetter. Go vote now!”
According to ABC8News, Jill Biden expressed concern about the possibility of a new Supreme Court Justice being confirmed before the election. “I guess we’re going to have to wait until the next opening,” Jill Biden said. She told ABC8News that she hopes a transition of power to her husband would be peaceful. “I know Joe Biden will insist that it’s a peaceful transition,” she said. The Bidens plan to visit Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s casket tomorrow.
