President Biden visited former Sen. Bob Dole Saturday, days after the longtime Republican Senate leader said he has been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.
Mr. Biden arrived late Saturday afternoon at the Watergate complex in Washington, where Mr. Dole and his wife, Elizabeth, have an apartment. The White House, which hadn’t announced the visit ahead of time, said Mr. Biden was “visiting his close friend, Senator Bob Dole.”
Mr. Biden attended Mass after the visit. As he exited Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Georgetown, he was asked how Mr. Dole was doing.
“He’s doing well,” Mr. Biden said.
Messrs. Biden and Dole served in the Senate together for more than two decades. Both unsuccessfully sought their party’s 1988 presidential nomination.
