Jill Biden, the wife of Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden was in Traverse City today (Tuesday.)

Jill Biden spoke at a political rally outside Right Brain Brewery.

A little over 100 socially-distanced and masked attendees heard her praise her husband.

“He has spent his entire career listening to people and bringing people together," said Biden. "And he will be a president for all Americans.”

Biden also called for early in-person and mail-in voting.

Chasten Buttigieg, Traverse City native and husband to former candidate Pete Buttigieg also spoke.

Michigan will likely be a swing state in November’s general election.

President Donald Trump narrowly won the state in 2016.
