A member of the Democratic Party, he served as the 47th vice president from 2009 to 2017 under Barack Obama and represented Delaware in the United States Senate from 1973 to 2009.

At age 29, President Biden became one of the youngest people ever elected to the United States Senate. Just weeks after his Senate election, tragedy struck the Biden family when his wife Neilia and daughter Naomi were killed, and sons Hunter and Beau were critically injured, in an auto accident.

Biden was sworn into the U.S. Senate at his sons’ hospital bedsides and began commuting from Wilmington to Washington every day, first by car, and then by train, in order to be with his family. He would continue to do so throughout his time in the Senate. 

Biden married Jill Jacobs in 1977, and in 1980, their family was complete with the birth of Ashley Blazer Biden. A lifelong educator, Jill earned her doctorate in education and returned to teaching as an English professor at a community college in Virginia.

Beau Biden, Attorney General of Delaware and Joe Biden’s eldest son, passed away in 2015 after battling brain cancer with the same integrity, courage, and strength he demonstrated every day of his life. Beau’s fight with cancer inspires the mission of President Biden’s life — ending cancer as we know it.

In 1970, Biden ran for the 4th district seat on the New Castle County Council on a liberal stage that included help for public lodging for suburbs. The seat had been held by Republican Henry R. Folsom, who was running in the 5th District following a reapportionment of council districts. In 1972, Biden crushed Republican incumbent J. Caleb Boggs to turn into the junior U.S. senator from Delaware. He was the main Democrat able to challenge Boggs.

Death Of Biden’s Wife And Daughter

On December 18, 1972, half a month after the election, Biden’s wife  Neilia and one-year-old daughter Naomi were killed in an automobile accident  while Christmas shopping in Hockessin, Delaware.

A long time later, Biden said he had heard that the truck driver drank liquor before the crash. The driver’s family rejected that case, and the police never validated it. Biden later apologized to the family. The accident had filled him with anger and religious doubt. He wrote that he “felt God had played a horrible trick” on him.
