48 years ago, @JoeBiden first won election to the Senate on November 7, 1972. Biden was 29 years old when he won his seat in Delaware. January 5, 1973, 4-year-old Beau Biden plays near his father as he's sworn in as US senator from Delaware in a Wilmington hospital.
Not only was Beau Biden an incredible lawyer, he was a dear friend who fought alongside me every step of the way during the foreclosure crisis.
Five years ago we lost a longstanding public servant, Beau Biden. You couldn’t find a man with more principle and courage who cared deeply about his family and the nation he served. @JoeBiden and @DrBiden , thinking of you and the entire Biden family today.
Thinking of @JoeBiden , @DrBiden and the entire Biden family today. Beau Biden was my friend. We were AGs together, and you couldn’t find a person who cared more deeply for his family, the nation he served, and the state of Delaware. Four years after his passing, I still miss him.
