Biden thanked the two dozen or so volunteers.

“He talked about how we could become safer from the COVID outbreak and to keep pushing forward, considering we don’t have a quick solution,” said Alexandra McFadden of Philadelphia, describing Biden as “down to earth.

A crowd of more than 50 people stood in front of City Hall hoping to get a glimpse of the candidate.

As Biden spoke, a group of people from the Philadelphia Nazarene Narrative broke out in song, singing hymns.

Biden was joined by U.S. Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon, D-5 of Swarthmore, Chester Mayor Thaddaus Kirkland and Delaware County Councilwoman Christine Reuther.

He also arrived with Secret Service, some in military gear, who kept bystanders on the sidewalk across the street.
