Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will pay a visit to Little Haiti before making an appearance at a town hall event in downtown Miami. It's the first time Biden is visiting Miami since Sept. 2019.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will visit Little Haiti and Little Havana ahead of a Monday evening NBC town hall event near downtown Miami, his campaign announced Sunday.

The former vice president and his wife, Jill Biden, are scheduled to visit the Little Haiti Cultural Center in the mid-afternoon, according to his schedule. Then they will head to Little Havana to talk about Biden’s “Build Back Better” campaign platform — re-branded “Reconstruir Mejor” in recognition of the majority-Hispanic neighborhood.

After that, Jill Biden will head to Boca Raton in Palm Beach County for a drive-in rally. And Joe Biden will attend the 8 p.m. televised NBC town hall outdoors with a socially distanced audience of undecided voters at the Peréz Art Museum Miami. NBC has said it previously extended a similar offer to President Donald Trump, who on Sunday remained hospitalized with COVID-19.
