(CNN) - Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Joe Biden is cancelling his campaign events for Saturday and Sunday as his mother-in-law battles a serious illness.
The Senator from Delaware's campaign spokesman, David Wade, put out a statement saying "the campaign has cancelled Sen. Biden's schedule today and tomorrow because of a serious illness in Jill Biden's family. Hospice has advised the Bidens to remain close by, and we appreciate everyone's respect for the family's privacy."
Wade is referring to Biden's wife's mother, Bonny Jacobs, who is in a hospice in Pennsylvania.
Biden was scheduled to speak in Washington D.C. and then attend a fund-raiser in the nation's capitol Saturday night. Sunday he was expected to campaign in Virginia.
God bless the family Joe! Way to wack the opposition in the debate! Score now Obama/Biden (2), McBush/Failin (0)!
Maybe o'biden will shed another tear! Remember when they hung Sen. Clinton for shedding a tear? non-journalist said she was too weak to run country.
Jill and Joe, we will keep you in prayer . We have your back.
Jill and Joe, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this challenging time.
Praying for you and your family, Senator - God Bless You.
I hope everything goes well with the Biden's family. Go OBAMA & BIDEN
This is just how brainwashed '0' cult followers are "thoughts & prayers" should be with his mother-in-law not him. '0' cult followers can no longer think straight!
Godspeed to all the Biden family. They have had plenty to deal with lately, with a son deploying for Iraq, a mother ill, and Biden still able to hit it out of the park at the debate. Salt of the earth, baby!
Dear Sen Biden and Mrs Biden and Family,
I am sorry you all are going through this difficult time.
My prayers are with you.
While he is going through all of this, sending his son off to war, dealing with illness of his mother-in-law, the McCain campaign is
calling him a liar in the debates. The people are sick of this smear .
God bless you Senator Biden! You are indeed a saint with all you
have had to carry on your shoulders.
We are with you and your family in thoughts and prayer
Same here Sen. Biden.
our prayer are with you and your family, may God be with you and your family.
I was 5000 Miles away from Home. When I lost my Mum 3 month after I last saw her...... She was kind of Fit, even though she had been ikll for years with Asmah.. I never even went to the Funeral... The last time I saw her when I caught the bus into town.... Symathy I dont need.... I was only 19yrs old..... Sympathy.... ?????????????????
My best wishes to Jill Biden, her mother, and the rest of the family.
May God watch Over You and Your family and Put His loving arms around you and your beloved family during this difficult time... I lost Both My Mother and Sister in Law earlier this Year.. Myrna and family in Wisconsin
My thoughts are with the Biden family.
May god hold her in his hands and may she find peace
The focus of this article is NOT on McCain's preparation for the debate, it is about the fact that he is going to e "resort" which for some (obvious CNN) reason seems to be newsworthy.
Of course, CNN chooses to ignore the extreme extravagance that Obama has in every step of his campaign – like his PALATIAL, supersized, super fuel using, super emissions emitting campaign jumbo jet, complete with egotistical "Obama presidential seal". How presumptuous this elitist is, and how meaningless his behavior renders McCain's weekend visit to a "resort".
We love you, Joe! May God continue to bless and keep you and your family.
We will keep the Bidens and extended family in our prayers.
A conforting presence can go a long way on the road to recovery.
The Dems message of change resonate a lot with average American this year that the movement, the becon of light will continue to shine throughout America.
Nevertheless, your presence is indispensable. Above all else, I wish her a speedy recovery.
Best to you and yours Biden.
Your family is in our prayers Joe. By the way this is a real reason to suspend your campaign. No Gimmicks, Just family first.
God Bless you and your family Joe.
Biden seems like a good man. too bad for democrats he's not at the top of the ticket. He also knows Obama isn't qualified. check out his debates with Obama on youtube. revealing and sad.
Biden's too good for Obama. Hope all is well with his family.
