Former Vice President Joe Biden is campaigning in Philadelphia on this primary election day. The presumptive Democratic nominee has been steadily ramping up his public schedule over the last few days, trying to present himself as a credible alternative to President Donald Trump at a time of great crisis in the nation.

Though he’s the only candidate left on the ballot, Democratic primary voters can also choose from U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, of Hawaii, as they either vote in person, or post their mail-in ballots today.

Here’s Biden, via MSNBC:
