VP Joe Biden Going To Delaware To Help Chris Coons

Vice President Joe Biden will head to Delaware tomorrow to boost Democratic Senate candidate Chris Coons, TPM has learned.

A Coons campaign source tells TPM it’s a low-key event. Biden is expected to show up in Wilmington and greet Coons volunteers.

Democrats are newly excited they will retain control of the seat, which Biden held for more than three decades. The winner will be sworn in immediately following the election because it is a special election following the governor appointing a Biden replacement.Biden appeared on Rachel Maddow’s show last night to discuss the shocking Republican Senate primary that rocketed Christine O’Donnell into the spotlight.

The vice president also will be helping Coons with fundraising at some point during the campaign cycle.
