Secret Service plans to ramp up protection of Biden

The Secret Service plans to ramp up the protection of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in Wilmington city in anticipation of his possible win.

The Secret Service is sending reinforcements to Wilmington, Del., starting Friday to help protect former vice president Joe Biden as his campaign prepares for the possibility he may soon claim victory in his bid for the White House, according to two people familiar with the plans, The Washington Post reported.

The Secret Service summoned a squad of agents to add to the protective bubble around Biden after his campaign told the agency that the Democratic nominee would continue utilizing a Wilmington convention center at least another day and could make a major speech as early as Friday, according to the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the security protocols. A Biden campaign aide declined to comment.
