Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Monday defended his light campaign travel schedule, maintaining that he’s not overconfident about his odds of defeating incumbent President Trump with one week to go until the November election.
“The reason it looks like we’re not traveling — we’re not putting on superspreaders,” Biden said when asked about his “light” campaign schedule. “We are doing what we’re doing here. Everyone is wearing a mask and trying the best they can to be socially distanced. It’s important to be responsible.”
Biden’s campaign pledged last week that he was “going to campaign aggressively” in the final 11 days before the election, but since the second and final debate on Thursday night, the candidate has only ventured out of Delaware a handful of times: to Pennsylvania on Saturday and again on Monday for an impromptu event 15 miles away from Wilmington.
