UPDATED: President Biden and Gov. Northam visited Alexandria this morning

(Updated at 3:35 p.m.) President Biden again visited Alexandria this morning.

Biden was joined by First Lady Jill Biden and Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam at the Sportrock Climbing Center on Eisenhower Avenue in the West End.

Biden traveled to the city to “discuss the state’s progress against the coronavirus pandemic” and “celebrate summer as Virginia lifts all COVID-19 distancing and capacity restrictions” today, according to media guidance. He touted the quarter-billion dollars of federal investment in vaccination sites and Virginia’s declining rate of COVID-19 cases and deaths, according to a press pool report.

Several dozen people were on hand at the center for the event, including 17-year-old Lake Braddock High School junior Jacob Bosley, who introduced the president before he started speaking around noon. Also in attendance were Alexandria Mayor Justin Wilson and Reps. Don Beyer and Gerry Connolly.

Prior to the speech, the president spoke briefly with reporters and sized up which wall he would want to climb, according to the pool report.

The president also visited Alexandria last month, stopping by a COVID-19 vaccination site at Virginia Theological Seminary.
