BEAUMONT, Texas — About 150 people gathered at a home to hear Biden speak Friday evening, the Beaumont Enterprise reported

Biden said the nation will have issues if President Donald Trump is elected for another four year term in his Sept. 13 speech, according to the Beaumont Enterprise.

“We’re in a battle for the soul of America and I truly believe it,” The Beaumont Enterprise reported Biden said in his 30-minute address to the crowd. “It is not hyperbole.” 

Port Arthur Mayor Thurman Bill Bartie, former U.S. Representative Nick Lampson and Jefferson County Democratic Party chairman Cade Bernsen all attended the fundraiser, the Beaumont Enterprise reported.

Biden is the second presidential candidate that Riceland Healthcare CEO and president Mohammed Tahir Javed has hosted at his home, according to the Enterprise.
