Turn to 'Virtual' Campaigns Amid
Coronavirus Pandemic Due to the global pandemic,
candidates are having to avoid
gatherings with large crowds.
Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden has announced
all of his future campaign events will be "virtual." Political experts say they may be similar to
what Biden recently did at Philadelphia's
National Constitution Center.
The former vice president spoke at a podium
alongside only his wife, Jill Biden.
Far behind him was
a small group of supporters.
News networks carried his speech,
which was also streamed online.
Democratic strategist Jesse Ferguson
says virtual campaigns have been
in the works for a while.
