St. Croix’s Most Distinguished Tourist — Joe Biden — Returns For Sixth Time!
EAST END — The tourist St. Croix is most proud of — former Vice President Joe Biden — was spotted at sunrise at one of St. Croix’s most popular tourist attractions — Point Udall.
Alice Henry of St. Croix said that her son Devin Boyd saw Biden early on New Year’s Day.
“My son said that Biden jogged up to Point Udall to watch the sunrise,” Henry said. “He can’t disclose how long he’ll be here.”
Biden was at Point Udall with his wife Jill. They took time out to take a selfie together while they were there.
Others on Facebook caught photos of the potential 2020 Democratic Party candidate for president out at Point Udall, with a whole scrum of fellow joggers and onlookers seeking selfies.
Ohio radio personality Derek Steyer tweeted and posted photos from Ohio resident George Summers, who was vacationing on St. Croix.
Polls over the last few months show Biden as the clear favorite among Democratic voters, with about 26 percent support.
But these early indicators historically have had little value when it comes to who actually runs for the highest office in the land.
Biden has been visiting the territory over the holidays for years now. His brother owns property on Water Island, the small island just south of St. Thomas’ Crown Bay.
The Bidens vacationed on Water Island in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
They visited St. Croix in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2018 and now 2019 that the Virgin Islands Free Press knows of.
