Brief: Bidens Visit for the New Year

Dec. 26, 2008 – Vice president-elect Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, are in the Virgin Islands for a five-day vacation.
They arrived about 3 p.m. Friday and will be staying on Water Island. Rumors were flying that President-elect Barack Obama, who has twice visited the Virgin Islands, might also visit before the election, but a reliable source said that was "unfortunately" probably not true.
Several secret service agents, V.I. Police officers and other law enforcement officials were gathered on the dock at Crown Bay.
Gov. John P. deJongh met with Biden briefly on Friday afternoon.
