Former VP Biden makes Portland stop
PORTLAND, Ore. —
He served as President Barack Obama's number two, but Thursday at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall Joe Biden was the main attraction.
The former vice president of the United States stopped in Portland as part of his American Promise Tour. It is a series of talks Biden is giving on "issues that matter."
Biden's also promoting his new memoir "Promise me, Dad: A year of hope, hardship, and purpose." It's a tribute to his son Beau, who died of cancer in 2015.
"It was really important for us to see Joe Biden tonight because we absolutely adore him and what he went through was more than I could even imagine," said Kristi Smith.
Biden was last here in 2015.
Hillary Clinton will also be in Portland, speaking at the same venue in just under two weeks.
