Former Vice President Joe Biden accepted the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination Thursday night without uttering his opponent’s name.
Biden also drew from former President Barack Obama’s 2004 Democratic National Convention keynote speech while delivering his remarks.
He opened by quoting civil rights icon Ella Baker, “Give people light and they will find the way.”
“The current president has cloaked American darkness for much too long,” he continued. “Here and now I give you my word. If you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us, not the worst. I will be an ally of the light, not the darkness.”
