In 1972, when he was first running for the U.S. Senate, former Vice President Joe Biden stayed at the home of 37th District Democrat Committee members Helen and Dave Truitt in Lewes. While his family stayed with the Truitt family at their farm on Route 9, Biden drove around the area with Dave. who introduced him to a lot of people.
Biden showed his gratitude Friday morning when he attended the funeral for Truitt at Bethel United Methodist Church. See more coverage of the funeral and Biden’s visit in the Friday, Feb. 15 edition of the Cape Gazette.
