Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President Joe Biden, took time during Saturday’s campaign stop in Duluth to honor the legacy of Sen. Paul Wellstone and his wife, Sheila, WDIO-TV reported.
The Wellstones died in a plane crash along with their daughter, Marcia, and five others in Northern Minnesota 10 years ago this week.
Speaking in Wellstone Hall at Duluth’s Labor Temple, Biden called the Wellstones “such passionate, committed leaders.”
Biden also appeared in Minneapolis Saturday, speaking on such issues as education and the military. Republicans told KSTP-TV that Biden’s visit is a sign that the Democrats are worried about the support of President Barack Obama in the state.
