WILMINGTON, Del. — President Joe Biden — accompanied by one of his granddaughters, a first-time voter — cast his interim vote on Saturday.
Personal voting in his home state of Delaware, where Biden regularly returns on weekends, began Friday. Democrats across the country have encouraged voters to take advantage of early voting, either through mailed ballots or on the ground where available to maximize turnout.
Biden said he had a good feeling about the midterm elections, which will determine control of Congress for the next two years.
In the final days before the Nov. 8 election, Biden plans to ramp up his campaign travel with scheduled trips to Pennsylvania, Florida, New Mexico and Maryland to find Democratic congressional and governor candidates.
“I’m going to spend the rest of the time arguing that this isn’t a referendum. It’s a choice. A fundamental choice’, he says. “A choice between two very different views of the country.”
Biden agreed with his granddaughter Natalie, who is 18 years old. He also voted in Delaware last month, when he took a quick one-day trip for the state’s Sept. 13 primaries.
Delaware has no competitive congressional races this cycle.
