The Secret Service will send extra agents to protect Joe Biden on Friday in preparation for a possible victory speech for the presidential election, a report said.
The reinforcements will be assigned to Wilmington, Del., where the Biden campaign is headquartered at a riverfront convention center, as votes continue to be counted in several key battleground states, sources told The Washington Post.
The agents were dispatched once learning the former vice president planned to remain at the center on Friday.
Biden could reach the 270 electoral votes needed to secure the presidency by Friday and make a victory speech from the convention center.
Though Biden is getting added security, the Secret Service has yet to staff him with the level of protection given to presidents-elect, the report said.
The Secret Service and the Biden campaign did not respond to a request for comment from the newspaper.
