Skip to comments.The Hill's Campaign Report: Biden takes new tack to reach voters during outbreak
Posted on 03/27/2020 2:23:19 AM PDT by Libloather
Former Vice President Biden's campaigning is reaching out to voters as their lives are likely being turned upside down by the coronavirus outbreak. Biden, who is working out of his Delaware home these days, took part in a virtual press conference and a virtual happy hour. Additionally, Biden rolled out the inaugural edition of a newsletter, in which he announced an upcoming podcast.
Biden is trying to present a more personalized view of himself as many voters deal with the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. The former vice president's newsletter engages readers with a question and answer section, as well as his own reading list. The newsletter also includes a section titled "Note from the Doc," which features medical advice from a member of his public health advisory board.
The former vice president, who has been giving interviews and statements on the coronavirus pandemic, hosted a more lighthearted event on Wednesday evening in the form of a happy hour.
The strategy is an attempt for the Biden campaign to counterprogram Trump, who has the benefit of delivering daily press conferences from the White House on the coronavirus outbreak alongside noted experts like Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx. Biden has praised the experts, like Fauci, in recent days, but has criticized Trump's response to the crisis.
However, there is the question of whether this strategy will work. Biden is walking a fine line of counterprogramming Trump, while calling for national unity. We'll likely get more of an answer in the weeks to come as we hear more from Biden.

LOL. Biden is not going to be on the ‘RAT ticket. The ‘RATS are just using him to buy time.
all candidates should be supporting trump against covid-19... (yes?)
“hosted a more lighthearted event on Wednesday evening in the form of a happy hour.”
Lololo these people are pathetic. Lighthearted? Happy hour? Sure, if a poor, doddering old fool who loses his train of thought and stumbles over his words is lighthearted, then ok. It was happy hour because we laughed our heads off that this was their nominee.
Where is the Clinton Foundation in all of this? Why aren’t they donating some of their hundreds of millions to combat the virus?
Let the memes begin!
Bill and Hillary Clinton sent over 400 pizzas to New York hospital workers on front lines against coronavirus
Doh! That’s right! That never occurred to me, why is that not being brought up? unreal. On the other hand it’s not a real charity is it, but a money laundering racket that’s been allowed to operate completely hands off from justice. Trumps charity buys a painting to hang on the wall of the office and they close it down. Clinton foundation rips off $3.6 billion in Haitian aid money nobody says sh*t about it.
Right. It was never about charity with those two. Just a license to steal.
Ok, that’s something,but considering their net worth is in nine figures, not very much.
I want a public commitment from Joe that he will wear gloves before groping any more 12 year olds.
“Bill and Hillary Clinton sent over 400 pizzas to New York hospital workers on front lines against coronavirus”
Anyone think for a minute those two Grifters paid the going rate or for that matter a dime for those Pizzas?, Naw me either.
Hey gymnasium, Joe. Lets take it behind the gym. Bring your feeble friend Bernie with you. Were all about the same age, EXTORTIONIST TOUGHGUY. Say bye to your loved ones before you get there.
Its a spit in the ocean. And they were probably crappy chain store pizzas to boot.
I’m sure they got a discount.
