Neilia and Naomi were killed in a car crash in 1972, just a month after Biden was elected to the Senate. Hunter and Beau were injured in the crash but survived. Joe Biden remarried in 1977, to schoolteacher Jill Jacobs (now Jill Biden). Their daughter Ashley was born in 1981… Beau Biden was elected attorney general of Delaware in 2006 and served two terms, through 2014. He died of brain cancer on May 30, 2015… Joe Biden’s 1988 run for president was cut short in 1987 after he used portions of a speech from British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock in a campaign speech, without attributing Kinnock. Biden said it was an honest mistake, while critics called it plagiarism… Joe Biden published a memoir, Promises to Keep, in 2007.
