MR. BIDEN: BE HONEST; KEEP YOUR WORD AND RESTORE DIGNITY AND KINDNESS TO THE WHITE HOUSE
Biden was raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and New Castle County, Delaware. He studied at the University of Delaware before receiving his law degree from Syracuse University. He became a lawyer in 1969 and was elected to the New Castle County Council in 1970. He was elected to the U.S. Senate from Delaware in 1972 when he became the sixth-youngest senator in American history. Biden was re-elected six times and was the fourth-most senior senator when he resigned to assume the vice presidency in 2009.
