The former vice president endorsed and stumped for Democrat Conor Lamb in the special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th District. Lamb has declared victory and has a 627-vote lead, but not all media outlets have called the race.

Biden’s ability to connect with rural and working-class voters could help Democrats compete in districts and states that are more favorable for Republicans. Democrats need to win 24 seats in 2018 in order to take back the House.

And campaigning for Democratic candidates will give Biden a platform as he tests the waters for a potential presidential run. Biden is seen as a top contender if he decides to get in, but will likely face a crowded primary of Democrats wanting to take on Trump.
