Meantime, Democratic nominee Joe Biden met with the Blake family earlier this week. He also had a conversation with the 29-year-old father who is paralyzed in the hospital over the phone.
According to CNN, Blake told Biden, “I’m not giving up. I’m not going to give up on life even if I never walk again, I’m going to be optimistic and I’m going to be strong because my children need their father to believe.”
