Dr. Jill Biden makes campaign stop in Madison Heights urging to get out the vote
MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. (FOX 2) - With the presidential election about two weeks out, Dr. Jill Biden has a packed schedule on the campaign trail for her husband, Joe.
The theme is getting voters to the polls. She met with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan earlier on Tuesday and a visit with union members in Madison Heights.
"Soon we are going to have a commander-in-chief who brings out the best in us," Jill Biden said.
Dr. Biden had four stops in Michigan Tuesday. At Local 98, she stopped at a plumbers' union. Biden launched a women's canvass campaign - passing out get out and vote packets and encouraging women to hit the pavement.
"Don't wait to get involved, this election is too important," Biden said.
