WEST POINT – Former Vice-President Joe Biden, a 2020 candidate for president, will visit Lee County on Wednesday.
The event will be held at Small Grand Things, 1903 West Point Road, West Point. Biden is expected to speak at 2 p.m. and organizers are encouraging the public to arrive around 1:30 p.m.
The stop is part of a swing through eastern Iowa for the former Delaware senator who served in that capacity for more than 36 years.
Recent national polls show the race in Iowa tightening after Biden held a respectable lead ahead of Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg has closed the gap and all three are within single digits in polling.
