Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, will travel to Virginia Thursday as Election Day nears.

According to a press release from the former Second Lady's office, Jill Biden's visit will coincide with early voting in the state.

Jill Biden recently spoke at a Virginia-based "Women for Biden" early vote virtual rally alongside elected officials, including Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton, the first woman Speaker of the House of Delegates Eileen Filler-Corn and the first woman House Majority Leader Del. Charniele Herring.

“In this moment we have so much power,” she said. “We decide what comes next. Especially women, because we know how to change hearts and minds. We know how to organize and invest in our communities. And we win elections."

There is no word on where in Virginia Jill Biden will visit as of now.
