Joe Biden gave his teen granddaughter a kiss on the lips while giving a speech at a campaign trail event ahead of the Iowa caucuses.
The former Vice President was spotted clutching 19-year-old Finnegan Biden’s hand as they arrived at a campaign event at Clarke University in Dubuque, Iowa on Sunday.
The 77-year-old gave his granddaughter a peck on the lips as a crowd of supporters watched on.
The teen, who is the daughter of Biden’s son Hunter, later stood by as her grandfather hugged members of the crowd.
At one point, Biden could be seen interacting with a baby as he kissed the child’s hands.
The campaign event came on the eve of the Iowa caucuses as Democratic presidential candidates hustled across the state trying to fire up voters and make one last appeal to those struggling to make a final decision about their choice in the crowded field.
Campaigns and voters acknowledged a palpable sense of unpredictability and anxiety as Democrats begin choosing which candidate to send on to a November face-off with President Donald Trump.
The Democratic race is unusually large and jumbled heading into Monday´s caucus, with four candidates locked in a fight for victory in Iowa and others still in position to pull off surprisingly strong finishes.
Many voters say they’re still weighing which White House hopeful they’ll support.
Polls show Biden in a tight race in Iowa with Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, as well as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
