WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden is making an impromptu trip to his home state of Delaware to vote in the state’s primaries on Wednesday.
He told reporters before boarding Air Force One that he was going to Wilmington to vote.

Incumbent accountant Kathy McGuiness takes on lawyer and accountant Lydia York in the Democratic primary.
