The Bidens will be meeting with Jimmy Carter, and his wife, Rosalynn, in Plains, Georgia shortly after noon. The 96-year-old former president and the 93-year-old former first lady were unable to attend Biden’s inauguration because of the coronavirus pandemic. Both couples are now vaccinated, and the Carters have resumed worshipping in-person at their longtime church.
Biden was a young Delaware senator and Carter ally during the Georgian’s term in the White House, from 1977 to 1981. Carter is now the longest-lived American president in history.
Biden then will head to Gwinnett County for an early evening drive-in car rally. The Bidens are expected to be at the rally at Infinite Energy Center in Duluth around 6 p.m.
Biden's trip to Georgia comes a day after his first scheduled address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday evening.
Biden had previously been in Georgia in March with Vice President Kamala Harris.
