Those in attendance asked some tough questions, and Sen. Biden wasn’t afraid to look them in the eye when he anwered.

Following Sen. Biden’s visit, his son Beau Biden (Delaware’s Attorney General), met with Jody Ewing and Dennis Ryan in their home on Nov. 25 and again on Dec. 9 with other local activists. Sen. Biden’s wife Jill also met with area Democrats at the Onawa Public Library on December 28, 2007.
