Jill Biden has campaigned several times previously in Georgia, including a pre-pandemic fundraiser in Sandy Springs that attracted more than 100 prominent donors. Her husband has also logged several campaign appearances in Georgia, most recently during last year's Democratic debate in Atlanta.
Jill Biden has become one of the campaign’s top surrogates, with a spate of recent virtual visits to the battleground states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Arizona from the couple’s Delaware home. She also plans a three-stop online tour of Colorado on Tuesday.
The campaign's focus on Albany is notable. The rural area, long a Democratic stronghold, was devastated by a coronavirus outbreak that originated with a funeral service. While that meeting is for attendees only, Biden's 6 p.m. "virtual organizing event" is open to the public.
