Joe Biden Struggles to Campaign Virtually | US News


“Hello, Milwaukee!” the former vice president and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee said. “Thank you all for welcoming me into your city.”

Wednesday’s “rally” went off without much of a hitch, unlike an early May event aimed at Tampa, Florida. That event, the first virtual rally the campaign held, was marred by technical glitches, some unexplained blank screens and a baffled-looking Biden asking “am I on?” as he took off his signature aviator glasses to address the Internet crowd.
