ORONO/ BLUE HILL, Maine (WABI) - With 39 days left until the presidential election, Maine has been a stop on the campaign trail for Donald Trump Junior on Tuesday and Jill Biden on Friday.

Biden paid visits to two spots in Maine.

Biden’s first stop Friday afternoon was at a small gathering at Orono Brewing Company in Orono.

The Biden camp spoke with small business owners, folks from the blueberry and lobster industry, and others at the invitation-only event.

There, she talked about how she says her husband will unite the country by bringing calm to the U.S. and tackle jobs and the coronavirus.

From there, Biden made her way to Blue Hill where the streets in town leading to the public pier were lined with supporters.

Down at the pier, she spoke with residents, toured a lobster boat and spoke with Deer Isle Stonington Captain Julie Eaton.

“She is an amazingly open, Warm person and I expected no less. It’s a true honor to meet her. A little overwhelming and I can’t believe she came all this way to hear the concerns of the Maine lobsterman,” Julie Eaton, Lobster Boat Captain, said.

Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of Joe Biden, explained, “The logging industry, and to see the blueberries, and to see the lobster community. I don’t have that in Delaware, so it’s really interesting to come and meet voters all across America.”

Biden left Blue Hill around 5 p.m. and headed back to Washington.
