According to ABC4 News’ own investigation, out of the nation’s three vice presidents in nearly the last two decades, all will have been to Utah — just not all during their time of leadership.

Former Vice President Joe Biden spoke to students at the University of Utah in December 2018.

Now, Biden is running as a Democratic presidential candidate in the 2020 elections. He will make a campaign stop in Utah at the end of September.
