Joe Biden avoids questions on Hunter amid low-key marketing campaign
Democratic nominee Joe Biden dodged any questions relating to revelations about his involvement in his son Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings Wednesday, as he continued his low-profile presidential campaign in Delaware.
The former veep delivered remarks on the coronavirus pandemic in Wilmington after being briefed by a panel of doctors, and in characteristic style, did not take any questions from reporters before he walked off stage.
Biden, 77, and his wife, Jill Biden, then cast their votes in their hometown before heading to a fundraiser as President Trump and Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, held rallies in the battleground state of Arizona.
The Biden campaign this week fought back claims that it is ignoring key swing states after NBC News’ Chuck Todd pointed out that the president has campaigned more than Biden in North Carolina, Florida and Arizona.
The candidate, sporting an “I Voted” sticker, finally took two questions before he hopped in his black SUV, but the probing had nothing to do with bombshell revelations from Hunter Biden’s ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski, who accused Joe Biden of being in on the family’s plan to make millions in China.
Bobulinski claims he met the elder Biden in Los Angeles and has alleged the former vice president is “the big guy” named in the May 13, 2017, email first published by The Post outlining the family’s deal with a Chinese state-owned energy company.

On Tuesday, Biden headed to Georgia to try to win back the battleground state, where Trump maintains a razor-thin 0.4-point polling lead, according to a RealClearPolitics average of polls.
The former veep will also travel on Friday to Florida, where the two candidates are engaged in a neck-and-neck race.
But the septuagenarian challenger’s low-key White House bid has raised eyebrows in recent weeks as he called repeated 9 a.m. lids and stayed in his basement while the president kept crisscrossing across the nation.
