Joe Biden steps up the retail politics in New Hampshire

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is stepping up the retail politics as his 2020 campaign moves toward full gear.

During his first campaign trip to New Hampshire, the former vice president defended a controversial crime bill vote from his days as a senator.

He chatted with the media over President Donald Trump’s trade policies.

And he huddled one-on-one with an elementary schooler getting ready for a hockey tournament.

It’s a sign that the former vice president knows that his front-runner status still requires that he meet voters and the media in intimate settings.

And despite a history of freewheeling comments that sometimes get Biden in political trouble, his aides see it as a key part of the 76-year-old politician’s appeal.
