🇺🇸 Joe Biden Becomes a US Senator

Biden practiced law in Wilmington, Delaware. He was a public defender at first and then he started his own firm, Biden, and Walsh. Neither corporate law nor criminal law kept Biden’s attention for long. He decided to run as a Democrat for the New Castle County Council and won by a large margin in the region that was typically a Republican district. He served from 1970 to 1972 and then won the U.S. Senate election in 1972.
