Biden for President

(page updated November 13, 2020)        

Headquarters: Philadelphia, PA.
Attention Readers: This page is the general election edition. After a period of quiescence in March/April 2020 the campaign picked up its activity in late April, when it started showing more of an orientation towards the general election.  On April 24 the campaign's joint fundraising agreement with the DNC went into effect, on April 29 the campaign announced addition of another deputy campaign manager, on April 30 the campaign announced the vice presidential selection committee, and in the first part of May the campaign made more staff additions.  In the latter part of June the campaign started adding state leadership staff, and throughout July many more staff were added. In building out the national team and the state teams during the summer, the campaign has brought on many staffers who worked on campaigns of Biden's former rivals.  On Aug. 11 the vice presidential team was added.  In Sept. the campaign added a bunch of state directors in non-battleground states.  Through the end of September, the campaign's field efforts in the states were virtual, but on Oct. 1 the AP reported, "Biden this weekend will dispatch several hundred newly trained volunteers to engage voters across Nevada, Michigan, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania. The effort, focusing on voters who are considered difficult to reach by phone, is expected to spread into several more battleground states and include many more volunteers in the next few days and weeks."  Separate from the campaign, the transition team is at work.  Also see the primary election edition, which covers the first year of the campaign from launch in April 2019 through the contested primaries to end of April 2020Suggestions/input/additions/corrections for this page would be greatly appreciated.  Strictly on background.  Help make it better!  Email action08 @  gmail  |  @JoeBiden  |  @TeamJoe
