Joe Biden’s security increased by Secret Service ahead of possible election win.
The Secret Service is reportedly sending additional agents to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s hometown of Wilmington, Del., to increase protection of the former vice president as he inches closer to a potential victory on Friday.

The Washington Post and CNN both reported that additional agents were being sent to Wilmington. Two people familiar with the matter told the Post that the Secret Service activated the group of additional agents after being notified by the Biden campaign that it planned to continue using a Wilmington convention center for at least another day, with plans to make a major speech as early as Friday.
The Post reported that the additional security measures scheduled to begin Friday will not be the full protective detail that accompanies a president-elect, although it would be an increase to the dozens of agents currently protecting the Biden campaign at the Chase Center on the Riverfront convention center in Wilmington.
A Secret Service spokesperson declined to comment to The Hill about any increase in protection for Biden, saying that the agency does not publicly discuss security planning or methods it uses in its protection efforts.
