Biden casts early vote, hits out at 'stop the steal'

STORY: The president was accompanied by his granddaughter Natalie Biden, who voted for the first time amid cheers from electoral staff.

After voting, Biden told reporters that Paul Pelosi, the husband of U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, is doing better following an attack at their home. He urged political actors to condemn political violence and those who push conspiracies about the 2020 election being stolen from former president Donald Trump.

"You can't condemn the violence unless you condemn those people who continue to argue the (2020) election was not real, that it is being stolen, and all the malarkey that's being put out there to undermine democracy," Biden said.

"You can't just say 'I feel badly about the violence and we condemn it'. Condemn what produces the violence, and this talk produces the violence."
