Biden seeks Democratic, national unity in convention finale
August 21, 2020
WILMINGTON, Del. - Joe Biden is accepting the Democratic presidential nomination Thursday night, achieving the pinnacle - so far - of his nearly five-decade political career on the final night of the most unorthodox national convention in modern history.
The former vice president is hoping the night helps the Democrats make progress toward not only unifying the diverse party but a deeply divided America struggling through a global pandemic as well.
Biden was to be feted by family and former foes as he becomes the Democratic Party's official standard bearer in the campaign to defeat President Donald Trump in November.
