Biden to campaign for Northam in Northern VA

(WWBT) - Former Vice President Joe Biden will hit the campaign trail in Northern Virginia on Saturday as Election Day draws closer.

Biden and Democratic candidate for governor Ralph Northam will host a workforce development roundtable in Reston.

They "will discuss Ralph's G3 plan -- Get Skilled, Get A Job and Give Back -- to develop a skilled workforce to fill the essential, well-paying new collar jobs of the 21st century in cybersecurity, computer programming, clean energy, healthcare and other high needs areas," Northam's campaign said in a news release.

Biden's appearance in Virginia comes just a couple of days after Vice President Mike Pence said he would campaign for Republican Ed Gillespie this week.
