NEW CASTLE, Del. (Reuters) - Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday said he will follow the recommendations of the debate commission on how to proceed after his election opponent President Donald Trump announced he would not participate in next week’s virtual presidential town hall and suggested having a rally instead.
