Joe Biden Profile

Joe Biden

36 years in the Senate and eight as Barack Obama’s vice president.

Joe’s Vision:

“We are in a battle for the soul of America.

It’s time to remember who we are. We’re Americans: tough and resilient. We choose hope over fear. Science over fiction. Truth over lies. And unity over division. We treat each other with dignity, we leave nobody behind, and we give hate no safe harbor.

We are the United States of America. And together, there is not a single thing we cannot do.”

We’re in a battle for the soul of America. It’s time to remember who we are. We’re Americans: tough,resilient, but always full of hope. We treat each other with dignity. Let’s rebuild the middle class—and this time, we’ll make sure everyone comes along – black, white, Latino, Asian. Everyone. Let’s fight back against the incredible abuses of power we’re seeing. Let’s dig deep and remember that our best days still lie ahead.

This is what Joe believes.
