The appearance will take place at A.I. DuPont High School in Greenville, near Biden’s home. Media reports indicated a crowd had gathered outside the high school to catch a glimpse of the candidates.
Media representatives were inside the high school in the socially distanced event. The soundtrack leading up to the appearance featured tunes like the 1970s hit “Mr. Big Stuff.”
Harris and Biden have also scheduled an online-based fund-raising event. Biden announced the selection of Harris, a former California Attorney General on Tuesday afternoon.
Wilmington is in the national spotlight today, with a focus on the Hotel DuPont, where activity related to the Biden campaign started early this week.
Media personnel began streaming into the city as signs pointed toward Biden announcing his selection.
It has also been reported that the Chase Center on the Riverfront will be the location for Biden’s acceptance speech at a largely virtual Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee.
