Story from Joe’s Deputy Campaign Manager and Director of Communications, Kate Bedingfield

“It can be hard to know when to close the laptop and let an email go unanswered for a while and when to pause on bathtime to deal with something genuinely urgent at work. 

But in those moments, I remember who I work for. Joe Biden is going to fight every day as president so parents don’t have to choose between doing our jobs and raising our kids, because we have the support we need to do both. I can’t wait for that day.”

The USPS released a new org chart on Friday showing the “reassignment” or removal of 23 postal executives including two top officials who oversee day-to-day operations, as well as a management hiring freeze, which many believe are part of an effort to suppress votes in a time when there is expected to be a surge in mail-in ballots.

FROM THE CAMPAIGN

Dr Jill on CBS This Morning

Joe Statement on the Grand Canyon: 
“Where virtually every American sees an irreplaceable jewel, Donald Trump sees yet another opportunity to fracture something inviolable for profit.”
https://medium.com/@JoeBiden/my-statement-on-the-grand-canyon-6d222044445

Joe’s statement on Trumps’ Exec Order
“He is putting Social Security at grave risk at a time when seniors are suffering the overwhelming impact of a pandemic he has failed to get under control. And make no mistake: Donald Trump said today that if he is re-elected, he will defund Social Security.”

Joe will be naming his running mate soon and here’s what we know:
She is a woman
She is phenomenal
We will support her bid to break the glass ceiling and cheer for whoever Joe selects to join him on the march to Election Day. Because when women show up, we win!

BELIEVE. AND WE WILL WIN.
