Biden Vows to End 'Darkness,' Sets Tone for Bruising Battle Against Trump

Biden’s speech -- the most important of his nearly half-century in politics -- set the tone for a bruising general election battle against Trump. Because of the coronavirus outbreak, the former vice president spoke to a largely empty room at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware, with supporters parked outside watching on screens as if at a drive-in movie theater.
