Jill Biden has incessantly stood by her husband Joe Biden through all the Presidential bids in 1988, 2008, and 2020.
Jill Biden is the wife of Democratic Presidential candidate former vice President Joe Biden.
Before she was noticed by the National spotlight when her husband became the vice President of the US in 2008, Dr. Jill Biden has kept her profile relatively low in her home state of Delaware.
It was only after Jill Biden has stepped into the elite areas of the White House that the world was forced to take note of the 69 year old college professor who has been the most trusted political advisor for nearly five decades.
On the night of the virtual Democratic National Convention in August, Joe Biden joined his wife as she stood in the middle of the public school in Wilmington where she had once taught dozens of students nearly 30 years ago.
With only few weeks for the presidential election and almost every other poll indicating the victory for Joe Biden, Jill Biden this time is set to become the potential first lady of the US.
