MAINE, USA — Dr. Jill Biden will be campaigning in Maine on Friday, September 25, the Biden-Harris campaign announced on Monday.

Dr. Biden is the wife of Democratic presidential nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden. 

Dr. Biden is a lifelong educator who has a doctorate in education. She’s been on the campaign trail, traveling to battleground states across the country on a “Back to School” tour. Details about the campaign trip have not yet been released, so it's unclear what Dr. Biden's trip to Maine will focus on. 

Last week, she traveled with Kamala Harris' husband Doug Emhoff to New Hampshire, where the focus was on health care and veterans. 

President Donald Trump's son Don Jr. is also set to campaign in Maine this week. He'll be in Holden on Tuesday. 

Maine is a unique state when it comes to elections. It's pretty evenly split red and blue; it's one of two states that splits electoral votes, rather than the "winner take all" process; and it has early voting. All of these factors make Maine an enticing battleground state for presidential candidates.
