Gallery: Dr. Jill Biden visits El Paso on 1st day of Early Voting

Dr. Jill Biden, former Second Lady of the United States, stopped in El Paso Tuesday morning as part of a get out the vote campaign on behalf of her husband and others on the ballot.

At the UTEP campus, Dr. Biden was welcomed by a stand-up sign spelling out “Vota Ahora,” as well as Folklorio dancers, Mariachis, and a small group of socially distanced supporters.

She was joined by current U.S. Rep. Veronica Escobar, D- El Paso, and former Congressman and Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke.

Before heading to the UTEP campus, Dr. Biden stopped at the Grand Candela August 3 memorial at the Cielo Vista Walmart, where she paid her respects to the victims of the massacre and left flowers.

Our very own Ruben R. Ramirez was at the UTEP event and we bring you his view of the event via this gallery.

I am Currently working as the UTEP Athletics Photographer. I'm a 1973 Graduate of Austin High School, was Honorably Discharged from the United States Marine Corps (USMC) in 1976, after serving 3 years. My journalism career began September 1976 with the El Paso Herald-Post and ended in 1997 after 21 years, when the HP closed. I then went to work for KDBC-TV Channel 4, local CBS affiliate for 14 months. Upon leaving KDBC-TV, I then joined the El Paso Times for another 21 years. I recently retired in January 2019 and am a Freelance Photographer and Staff Photographer back where my career began with the El Paso Herald-Post (WEB version.) So here's to 21 more years hopefully with the news organization that gave me my start. Semper Fi!!!
