Representatives of Delaware, where Biden lived most of his life, made speeches at the convention. As the governor of the state John Carney told how Senator Biden traveled to work by train with the rest of the passengers. Acting Senator from the state Thomas Carper, in turn, spoke about the politician's honesty, modesty and truthfulness, as well as his respect for others and said that Biden "builds bridges, not walls."
