“He’s going to provide clear, evidenced-based – yes, he does believe in science – guidance for businesses, schools and individuals created by public health experts,” Biden said.

She added that under a Biden administration, all Americans would have access to free COVID-19 testing, treatment and a future vaccine.

“He has spent his entire career bringing people together, and that’s his strength – to get the seemingly impossible done,” Biden said.

A new poll from Colby College showed that 50% of registered Maine voters prefer Biden and 39% prefer Trump.

Wild blueberry grower Lisa Hanscom, who runs a 108-year-old family farm, said Trump’s trade war with China has jeopardized her business.

She said the Biden-Harris team would bring change in policies and tone.

“They will show you steady leadership – there’s going to be a time when you feel like you can take a breath again,” Biden said.

Biden said her husband’s election would end what she called “the chaos we feel every day” and would bring a fractured nation back together.
