Biden to Campaign with Southern Illinois Democrat Kelly

East St. Louis (AP) – Former Vice President Joe Biden will campaign for Democrat Brendan Kelly as he tries to retake a southern Illinois district won by Republican Rep. Mike Bost in 2014. Officials with the Kelly campaign say Biden is scheduled to campaign Wednesday in East St. Louis with the prosecutor and Navy veteran. The working-class corner of the state supported Donald Trump by 15 percentage points after twice backing Barack Obama for president. It had been held by Democrats for more than 30 years.
