Jones announced that Biden will campaign with him on Oct. 3 in Birmingham.

“Honored to have my old friend VP @JoeBiden to campaign in B'ham Oct 3! #ALSEN #alpolitics #DougJonesforSenate,” Jones wrote on Twitter.

“He exemplifies what it means to be a public servant,” Jones wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. “I am thrilled for him to travel to the state and speak to the folks who make Alabama so great!”


Biden endorsed Jones last month before the state’s Democratic primary. Jones in the December general election will be a heavy underdog against the Republican candidate who wins in next week’s GOP primary runoff.
