Former Vice President Joe Biden introduced himself as “Jill Biden’s husband” at a Monday event kicking off his presidential campaign in Pittsburgh.

“My name is Joe Biden, and I’m Jill Biden’s husband,” Biden said. “That’s how I’m known back home, that’s how I’m known most places.”

She made educational initiatives in general and community colleges in particular a key aspect of her advocacy as second lady, calling community colleges one of the nation’s “best-kept secrets.”

She also collaborated with then-first lady Michelle Obama on the Joining Forces initiative, aimed at encouraging Americans to support military families. Joe and Jill Biden have been married since 1977.

The former vice president, who officially announced a presidential bid last week, has led most polls of the crowded Democratic field, usually followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
