WILMINGTON, Del.—Vice president Joe Biden is urging fellow Delaware Democrats to get voters to the polls for the midterm elections.

Biden headlined a Democratic rally in downtown Wilmington on Monday evening that drew about 200 people.

He was confident Democrats would hold on to the Senate seat that had been his for more than 30 years.

Joining Biden were New Castle County executive Chris Coons, who is considered the favorite in his U.S. Senate race against Republican tea party favorite Christine O'Donnell.

Former lieutenant governor and Democrat John Carney also appeared at the rally. He faces Republican Glen Urquhart for the seat held by Rep. Mike Castle, the Republican who gave up his spot to run for Senate and lost the primary to O'Donnell.
