New Brandywine school won’t bear Joe Biden’s name

    Well, Joe, you can’t win everything.

    A new school in Delaware’s Brandywine School District will not be named after Vice Pres. and Delaware native Joe Biden. Instead, the Hanby Elementary School & Bush Early Education Center will open its doors for the first time later this year.

    Bill Cook reports for WHYY about how the name was chosen and why some voters went to great lengths to make sure Biden wasn’t the namesake.
