9/2/2020 The Irish Sun

US Presidential hopeful Joe Biden told his Irish relatives “you guys rock” after his cousin here got a slogan emblazoned on his van backing the Democrat.

The former US Vice President has roots in Ballina, Co Mayo and visited his ancestral home in 2016 and 2017.

And plumber cousin Joe Blewitt, from Knockmore, said the entire town of Ballina is behind Biden’s bid for the White House, and said he thinks he would make “a great president”.

He told the Irish Sun: “He is big into his family and values. He really believes in looking out for people and minding each other.

“My dad is his third cousin. We’ve met him a few times already.”

Joe, 41, who runs a plumbing and heating company, decked out his new company van with a slogan saying: “Joe Biden for the White house and Joe Blewitt for YOUR HOUSE.”
