An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Joe Biden will take a hiatus from the vice presidential campaign trail on Monday and Tuesday to be with his family following his wife’s mother’s death.
Bonny Jean Jacobs, Jill Biden’s mother, died Sunday after a long illness, the campaign announced. The funeral will be held Tuesday.
“We appreciate everyone’s respect for the family’s privacy during this difficult time,” Biden spokesman David Wade said in a statement.
The campaign had canceled Biden’s schedule on Saturday evening and Sunday after being advised by hospice care that they should remain close to home.
Sincere prayers with the family at this tough time.
