There were multiple reports of former Vice President Joe Biden spottings on St. Croix at dawn Jan. 1.

Reader Alice Henry of St. Croix alerted the Source that her son Devin Boyd saw Biden.

“My son said that Biden jogged up to Point Udall to watch the sunrise. He can’t disclose how long he’ll be here.”

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.

Multiple polls over the last few months show Biden as the favorite among Democratic voters, with around 26 percent support. Polls this early historically have had little predictive value about how the race will shape up however.

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, on St. Croix in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2016 and now 2018. It cannot be ruled out that they visited other years as well, without being spotted.

Cute as a button. Darling little princess. Please protect them

Make sure they Mask 😷 up.

Loving and trusting someone is such a risk and i don't wish any woman to be in the same shoes as i was sometime back when I caught my husband red-handed with my own best friend in our own bed. I couldn't believe it when I saw it and my heart started beating so fast and felt like my body is shaking then I ran straight to my elder sister's house. I cried so much and my sister left me to cry and told me it would help ease the pain I was feeling. Then she sat me down and asked me if I still love my husband and I told her yes of course, and she told me that we all learn and grow through mistakes and no one is perfect and told me that if I wanted my man back I should fight for him and never trust friends again.My sister told me to contact profisma+27783320386 who had helped her husband with financial issues and told me he will help me bring my man back. It took me weeks to think about it because we come from a strong religious background but things worsened because I could not even concentrate at work and i got fired, and after that, i remembered what my sister had told me about consulting with him. That's when I contacted him and told everything, he listened, and told me that he will solve all my problems in 48 hrs. Since it was my first time doing this, i could not believe his words just like that but i had to wait until the time he had promised. I was asked to buy materials to help me which I did, we begun the prayer and results were delivered in three days. My husband called me and asked me where I was, and he came straight to me and confessed how my best friend seduced him, and he was sorry to fall into her trap and showed me all the messages my best friend was sending to him and promised never to see her again and promised to love me and only me. That evening he took me to a romantic dinner, Since prophet isma helped me, I got a better paying job than the previous one, my husband is back to the old man I used to know and he loves me so much and does everything to see that am happy. Thank you so much prophet, your spells indeed work. If you're going through struggles, you can text him on WhatsApp +27783320386 or call him
